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

71

There are many people out there who should never be allowed to own or be near animals.

This spring, Hayden Howard noticed that something wasn’t right with her dog.

Her English Mastiff Jackson had been playing in the backyard while she was inside. When she called him in it looked like he was covered in insect bites.

But when she looked closer she realized that the truth was a whole lot worse.

Jackson was in fact covered in bullet holes.

”I was completely shocked, I didn’t know what to think,” Hayden told WXIN.

When she realized that Jackson had been shot she took him straight to the vet. When the vet examined Jackson, he found masses of tiny bullets that had been fired from a BB gun.

“There was one stuck under his eyelid, one in his ear, one in his knee, they were everywhere,” Hayden says.

There were so many that the vet had to shave almost all of Jackson’s fur to take out the plastic shells. He removed 27 bullets in total and was forced to leave 20 where they were.

On top of that, the vet found 20 more bullet holes in Jackson’s small body.
