This poor dog has died after being found brutally beaten, with one its eyes hanging on a thread and the other torn out of its socket.

Animal rights organisation TAC Una Proteccion al Entorno (Protection for the Environment) say they received a call informing them a badly injured dog was on the streets of the city of Tehuacan, in the central Mexican state of Puebla.

The anonymous caller did not provide a location and volunteers are said to have spent hours searching the streets before finding the poor pooch named Miky.

In the video, Miky can be seen sitting on the ground with his right eye removed and his left appears to be severely damaged and is sticking out of its socket.

The dog has blood all over his face as the volunteer strokes it before she puts him in her car and takes it to the Arca de Noe veterinary clinic in her arms.

The vet, Eduardo Haghenbeck, told the volunteers that Miky was in a critical condition having been beaten in his head and he said the pooch had suffered brain damage.

The dog’s eardrum had exploded and a vet specialised in neurosurgery was called.

However, Miky died from his injuries before the specialist arrived.

TAC has offered an unspecified cash reward for anyone who can offer information to help the authorities catch those responsible.

The organisation are working with the authorities in their investigation but no arrests have yet been reported.
