Last week an Australian shepherd that had been shot in the head was found dumped in ditch. Luckily the dog was found alive and is making a miraculous recovery. The dog was found in the ditch by a woman, from Lac Brome Quebec, while she was walking her dogs. Her dogs barked furiously at something in the ditch that was half-covered with snow. Quickly she found that it was a dog who is now being called Orville. There is now an investigation underway to try to locate the person responsible.
Orville was shot in the back of the head just behind his ear. The x-rays showed that the bullet had burst in the dogs head and cannot be removed. Carl Girard, president of the Société Protectrice des Animaux de L’Estrie’ told the Montreal Gazette "it's a miracle, the dog didn’t move, or eat or drink for three days, all it moved was its eyes." In the beginning of his treatment the dog was partly paralyzed and was not able to move. Slowly, he started to eat and now he is walking, eating and even running.
The dog was found on Feb. 24, 2013. Shortly after being found the SPA notified the police (the Sûreté du Québec in Éstrie) and an investigation is currently underway. Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the police at 819-564-1212 or the SPA at 819-821-4727.
