Miracle Dog Survivies And Is Adopted After Being Shot In The Head

Comments Off on Miracle Dog Survivies And Is Adopted After Being Shot In The Head

 

A stray Kansan dog found himself a home last weekend after narrowly escaping death.  The Shepherd mix, named Titan, had been wandering around the Flat Ridge 2 wind farm in Harper county.

“He was just hanging around, and people were giving him scraps of lunch and whatever else,” crew member Stephanie Babcock said.  “He was just a sweetheart of a dog.”

Then Titan vanished.  A few days later he returned, badly wounded.  He had been shot in the head, and the bullet traveled through his mouth, tongue and throat.  Babcock called a veterinarian.  Surgery to remove the bullet and repair damages was successful, but Titan is now blind in his right eye.

It is unknown who shot Titan, or why.  But through this misfortune shines a ray of happiness.  Babcock contacted local news stations with his story.  Soon, a Wichita family heard and decided they wanted to adopt him.

“I have a soft spot for canines,” said Summer Magyar.  “Seeing the pictures and hearing the story were heartbreaking.”

“I see this wonderful, wonderful dog,” 15-year-old Ryan said.  “He’s so playful, and he’s so friendly.”

A fund for Titan’s medical procedures and future bills has been established at the Swaney Veterinary Clinic in Kingman, KS.  Any extra money will be donated to the local Humane Society.

…And Now Cats Are The Latest Victims Of Craigslist [REPORT]

Comments Off on …And Now Cats Are The Latest Victims Of Craigslist [REPORT]

In what appears to be a horrific case of animal abuse, Craigslist users and resident of Marion County in Oregon state have called in a large number of reports of people picking up animals, mostly domestic cats, from Craigslist ads and then killing the helpless animals in cold blood.

Don Thomson  – the Sheriff of Oregon state’s Marion County – has made his community aware of these alleged killings of cats by some Marion County residents and is requesting anyone with more information to come forward anonymously. News reports in several local news stations all reported that the Sheriff’s office has received word that certain individuals are picking up animals advertized in the “free domestic animals to good homes” section of Craigslist and then using them as target practice on the fields, shooting the poor helpless felines with guns.

Thomson said numerous calls and emails had reported the crimes, but the sheriff’s office had not yet determined whether the reports were factual. Many of the callers have reported that pictures of the crimes are being posted on social media sites.
“Our Office aggressively investigates all reports of animal neglect or cruelty and we take these reports quite seriously,” Thomson said.

If you have any information on this cruel heinous crime against animals, you are requested to call the Marion County Sheriff’s Office tip line at (503) 540-8079 or contact Deputy Mark Ferron via email at Mferron@co.marion.or.us.

The warning below was featured in several posts on the Salem Craigslist “pets” section, thereby throwing some legitimacy to the horrific allegation.

Do the right thing and call the perps in.
