A man is facing animal cruelty charges after he used a hacksaw to cut off his pet dogs leg
Luc Jean Baptiste
is alleged to have used duct tape to shut the dogs mouth and hog tied her so he could carry the crude amputation.
Baptiste,48, told officials his 10 year old dog had injured her leg.
'I don't buy for one minute that someone is trying to help an animal by doing something so barbaric to it.'
Animal control officials have named the dog, a pit bull-type mix, Karma.
'I think that what goes around comes around,' said Sauve, who came up with the name.
'I think whoever did this to this dog is going to be carrying a karmic debt for a long, long time.'
The dog was also has a severe infection in her uterus, a sign that she has been used for breeding, officials said.
Animal control officers removed seven adult dogs and four puppies from Baptiste's home in Belle Glade, Florida.
Police discovered the crude amputation after being called to Baptiste's home to investigate a shooting. Officers called in animal control officers to investigate.
The rescued dog is to undergo an operation to repair her severed leg as well as an operation to remove her uterus.
