Border Police officers patrolling near the separation fence in the Jerusalem region on Monday discovered four puppies brutally chained together.

The animals were fettered in a manner that prevented them from moving about freely, according to authorities.

“During a foot patrol, I heard a faint voice from one of the wadis, so I went down to check it out,” said Staff Sgt. Raviya Blum, the commander of the unit that spotted the canines.

“What I saw was not pleasant,” she said. “There were four sweet puppies tied to one another by the neck. We then diverted from our original mission, moved them to the road, and took care of them.”

“Some of the puppies didn’t even respond until we gave them water and food,” she said. “Then they recovered. It looks like they were without food and water for a long time.”

Some of the Border Police officers have expressed interest in adopting the puppies.

“In my view, this is a mission that is no less important than any other mission we are called upon to fulfill,” said Blum.
