Here is a somewhat long story that might be more of a horror story for pet lovers.
Back in the 80s my parents had a cute brown mutt. She was smart and had a lovable charisma, a really easygoing type of dog. My parents cared for her immensely. She was always inside the house’s fenced property, only leaving when accompanied by one of the owners. So it was strange that one day, even though this precaution, no matter how much they’d call for her she wouldn’t come. They searched the whole house and garden but the dog was nowhere. They assumed she must have found a way out even though how unprovable it seemed to them. All the ways out of the property were closed, the fence was too big to jump, there were no evidences of escape efforts, and it was just out of the dog’s character to leave the house even if given the chance.

It seemed impossible to everyone that, in such a short time, the dog would end up like that. At least on its own.
What worried the most though were some strange marks on her body, especially a few clean and symmetrical small holes on her head. They didn’t seem organic, as with an animal bite. They appeared to have been done with an object.
They rushed to a vet and even though the doctors couldn’t come up with a good reason for her state, they did had one suspicion. They supposed she might have been victim to animal testing. They told my parents that in a neighbourhood not very far from where they lived there was a research facility (of what my parents don’t remePost too long. Click here to view the full text.
