Dog Shot in Face and Left in Garbage Bag to Die

A dog has been found sealed up in a contractor’s garbage bag after being shot with a shotgun in the face and left to die.

A good Samaritan, Tami Augustyn, was notified by a friend that a dog had been tied up in a garbage bag and left to die along Bulldog Lane in Conroe, Texas.

Tami immediately picked up the severely wounded dog and took him to Animal Emergency Clinic in Conroe, Texas where the dog is being evaluated and stabilized until they close on Monday, January 7th at 8am in which he will be transported to another vet.

Under initial evaluation, the dog has been shot in the face, including in both eyes and inside his mouth, with birdshot fragments.

This has left the dog either temporarily or permanently blind and will require a specialist to evaluate his eyes. The dog also needs x-rays of his hind legs to determine why he can’t walk.

The dog is affectionately being referred to as “Buck” after Buckshot.

A Facebook page “Buck Needs Bucks for his Buckshot Injuries” has been created to follow his prognosis and documenting pictures of his wounds and medical bills.
