A puncture wound that claimed the life of a puppy in Hull recently appears to have been made by another animal, not a knife as originally suspected.
A deputy responded to a Williams Wilson Road call of animal cruelty and found a six-month old daschund puppy with a puncture wound behind his right ear. The deputy noted in his incident report that the dog appeared to have been stabbed. The report noted that there was no blood leading into or out of the garage and that the dog appeared to have been killed there.
The dog’s owner suspected that a neighbor, with whom he has had previous disputes, killed the dog. But the owner took the dog to the University of Georgia Vet Clinic for evaluation.
“They had a necropsy done and it told them that another animal, a coyote or dog, had done it,” said Sheriff Kip Thomas.
WOW... Anybody read the Banner Herald this morning. (Madison Co. puppy mauled, not stabbed)A University of Georgia veterinarian's necropsy of a Hull man's puppy determined the dog was killed by another animal, and not stabbed as the owner first thought, Madison County Sheriff Kip Thomas said Monday.
A deputy responded July 23 to a home on William Wilson Road, where a man said he found his roommate's 6-month-old dachshund dead in the carport.
Blood was spattered throughout the garage, and the man said it appeared the dog had been stabbed behind the ear, according to a sheriff's report.
But the owner took the dog to a UGA veterinary clinic, where the necropsy revealed the puppy died from bite wounds, Thomas said.
seem like we should get the facts straight before writing it is the paper.
