RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Richmond Animal Care and Control announced that ‘Tommie,’ the pit bull that was set on fire and abandoned in a Richmond park earlier this week, has passed away Friday morning. 

Richmond Animal Care and Control made the announcement on Facebook:

“I’m so very sorry to say that Tommie just passed away. He had just finished having his bandages changed and stopped breathing; his body simply gave out. Tommie was pain free and surrounded by people that loved him when he passed,” the post read.
