Some humans are monsters. You don't have to tell this little beauty about it, though. He witnessed it firsthand. He was apparently being used as "bait" for training dogs to fight. His fur was dyed purple and he was covered in puncture wounds. Thankfully, he landed at the Nine Lives Foundation shelter in San Jose after being found in a cardboard box.
