New Zealand: On Thursday, a 12 year old boy named Damon Boyer-Marwood was walking home from school when he heard a dog crying out in pain. He found a group of school boys with a dog pinned down to the ground. The boys were taking turns kicking the dog and hitting her with a cricket bat. Damon told the boys to stop and they ended up running off. He picked up the injured dog, carried her to a friend’s house and called the Wellington SPCA.
Via a microchip, the dog was reunited with her owner. The owner asked to meet Damon in person:
“I want to thank him from my heart, I want to know his face.”
Everyone involved is applauding Damon’s bravery and action:
Damon’s grandmother Jenny Marwood said she was proud of him. “It makes you wonder what would have happened if he didn’t step in.”
Yes, it makes you wonder.
