For the second time in as many months, a dog is found shot and dumped alive in a trash bag at FM 3083 and Jefferson Chemical Rd. NEWS 92 FM’s Norm Uhl has the story.
As an oilfield worker opened a gate to access an oilfield road on Saturday, he noticed a trash bag moving. Inside that bag, a young dog, bloody and wrapped in a towel. Authorities were notified and the dog was transported to the Conroe Emergency Animal Clinic.
The staff managed to stabilize her condition and named her Penny.
But, despite the best efforts of the veterinary staff, Penny died about midday on Sunday, her wind pipe damaged by the shooting. Captain Tim Holifield, head of the Montgomery County Animal Cruelty Unit, is investigating.
Holifield says it is a felony in Texas to shoot a non-livestock animal and it’s the second case this year.
About a month ago, a dog was found in a trashbag with shotgun wounds. He was treated at the same clinic and given the name Buck. His story gained worldwide attention and after several medical procedures he continues to improve.
