Some people suck.A man climbing one of Colorado’s tallest mountains now faces animal cruelty charges after leaving his wounded German Shepherd behind. Other hikers found the dog, named Missy, who was too hurt to make it down the mountain on her own. At 112 pounds, Missy was too heavy for them to carry so the hikers left her with food and water, climbed down the mountain, and orchestrated an effort to rescue her. Eventually, Missy was saved, but the owner who abandoned her atop a mountain now wants her back!
