She thought dog was full of bites – then vet looks closer and calls the police

The most horrible beings are those who harm animals for no reason. They are just a kind of crap whose living makes no sense. Every other day, a case of an animal being harmed by humans for no reason comes forward. Here is another one which is going to tell you how unsafe animals are.

BUG BITES

Hayden Howard’s English Mastiff, Jackson had been playing in the backyard when she called him in. She noticed that Jackson’s body had some unusual spots which she mistook as bug bites. But, a closer inspection left her in shock and something really horrible. There were holes on Jackson’s body. She immediately took Jackson for a checkup.

BULLETS

The checkup revealed something that left both Hayden and the vet in shock and sad. Jackson’s body had been shot more than 60 times by bullets and BB’s. “There was one stuck under his eyelid, one in his ear, one in his knee, they were everywhere,” Hayden says.

TREATED HIM

After examining, the vet started the process of taking out the bullets. They had to shave off Jackson’s fur and 27 bullets and seven BB’s were taken out from Jackson’s body. Some 20 bullets had bounced off and 20 more bullets had to be left the way they were.

THE MAIN CULPRIT

The investigation further revealed that the main culprit behind the whole inhumane act was Tim Woodard, Hayden’s neighbor. BB guns, pellets and drug paraphernalia were found in Woodard’s house. A drug addict, it was Woodard who had hit the dog so cruelly.

A CASE

Woodard has been arrested for drug charges. They are also waiting for laboratory tests to match the gun and pellets to Jackson’s injuries. Seymour Police Department Assistant Chief Craig Hayes said this was the worst case of animal cruelty he has ever seen. “I have never seen an animal shot that many times,” he said. “It’s a very bad case and it’s sad to see.” Jackson is however recovering and we hope Woodard gets well punished for his heinous crime.
