Sunday, June 9, 2024 by Isabella Sanchez

Animal advocates in the province of Sancti Spíritus celebrated on Friday the swift recovery of Yeiko, a dog who was brutally attacked with a machete by a man last May. They shared an emotional video of the dog barking at the street.

The ARCA Foundation Sancti Spíritus, which raised the alarm and provided first aid and care for the dog, posted a reel on Facebook showing Yeiko in good health and very active, a clear sign of his proper recovery. In the video, the dog is seen looking out from the porch and barking at something that catches his attention in the street. In the background, a female voice can be heard saying, "Where is he going? He's just making noise."

This Saturday, the same animal protection organization shared an image on Facebook showing Yeiko with an uncovered but healed wound, looking very active and in good shape. The post was widely celebrated by their followers, who had initially been outraged by the violence Yeiko suffered and then closely followed every step of his recovery.

Recently, the organization shared some images of the dog's recovery. "It's incredible how much Yeiko has improved; the wound is practically healed, and he behaves very well during his treatment," they noted on Facebook, continuing the story of this dog who was a victim of a violent and cruel act.

A Community Rallies Behind Yeiko

"Go Yeiko, you can do it, you're almost there," ARCA posted while sharing images of the dog with his owner, who found him after he was rescued and underwent surgery.

On May 20, the ARCA Foundation Sancti Spíritus became aware of the brutal attack on this dog, which immediately demanded their efforts to save his life.
