She Found A Dog Covered In Strange Markings, Then She Found Out What They Were…

Some people should never be allowed near animals—even from a distance. I mean, how could someone do this to a dog?

Some people are really cruel towards animals in this world. It is like a pleasure for them to bring pain to other beings. Seeing them crying or torturing them seems to amuse these psychopaths that cannot control their actions and let the devil in them come forward.

A dog has been shot more than 27 times with a BB gun and luckily his owner noticed in time to take the dog to the vet and save his life. The police were later called to investigate the case.

Hayden Howard from Seymour, Indiana noticed something strange about her dog. The 100-pound English Mastiff named Jackson had spent some time playing in the backyard and looked like he was covered in bug bites.

But when Hayden looked closer at her beloved pooch’s skin, she realized the situation was much worse. Instead of being covered in raised bumps, Jackson’s skin was riddled with holes.

“I was in shock, I didn’t even know what to think,” Hayden told FOX59.

Realizing that Jackson had been shot, Hayden took him straight to an animal clinic. And when vets there inspected the holes, they found BBs and pellets everywhere.

“There was one under his eyelid, there was one in his ear, one in his knee, they were all over, underneath of him.” Hayden told FOX59. “They came out there and he handed me this little cup and showed me all these little BBs and I just didn’t know what to say or what to do.”

Vets removed 20 pellets and 7 BBs, although another 20 pellets are still lodged in Jackson’s body and they believe 20 more hit him and bounced off.

Police checked the homes of Hayden’s neighbors and discovered a BB gun and pellets, along with drug paraphernalia, in the home of Tim Woodard.

Woodard was arrested for drug charges and police are waiting for laboratory tests to match the gun and pellets to Jackson’s injuries. If they are a match, police will bring an animal cruelty charge against Woodard as well.

Seymour Police Department Assistant Chief Craig Hayes said this was the worst case of animal cruelty he has ever seen.

“I have never seen an animal shot that many times,” he said. “It’s a very bad case and it’s sad to see.”

He said he believed Woodward was under the influence of drugs when he attacked Jackson.

Thankfully Jackson is now being taken care of and will hopefully make a full recovery soon. We wish him quick healing and many happy years ahead.
