Canine stabbing victim teaches lessons about animal cruelty

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - By Melanie Posey

BIRMINGHAM (WBRC) - The Birmingham Humane Society is nursing a stabbing victim back to health. If she survives, she may become a living lesson about animal cruelty.

The man accused of the crime has been jailed. And while April, the canine victim, is on the road to recovery, she'll also be used to help others learn from what she's been through.

April is also suffering from heartworm. But once she's been treated for it and spayed, she will be up for adoption.
