A dog in Kennett, Missouri, is recovering after being shot multiple times – presumably by a duck hunter. On December 3, the city pound for Kennett reached out to Facebook followers about the grievously injured dog who was found in an area frequented by duck hunters – Kennett Humane Department wrote:

(I was) contacted by some people about a dog being shot. Apparently this area is for duck hunters and a very rural area. Dogs are dumped and the area residence feed what they can. The dogs roam. So if the dogs get around the hunting area they are shot to keep the ducks from being scared off. This big guy is so sweet even with gunshot wounds and metal still inside of him.

The wounded dog was taken to the Kennett Veterinary Clinic for care – the city pound is hoping that people will help donate funds to cover this dog’s veterinary expenses.

It’s too DAMN BAD There are almost NO LAW ENFORCEMENT/ AGENCIES OR JUDICAL SYSTEMS that GIVE a HOLY SHIT about putting a stop to violent abuse and maiming of our canine/ feline companions in that Backward local yokel part of our NATION!!!

      You look at these wounds and have to wonder, if they are using the guns that shot this dog to kill ducks, would there be anything left of the duck? I think it was just open season on stray dogs myself!

        My husband says it looks more like a “Buck Shot” instead of “Bird Shot” and they were at close range!!! We in Wyoming are seeing more and more needless killings of none game animals.. cattle, sheep, horses in drive by shootings, Also game that is left to “rot” and someone just cutting their heads off for the trophy !!! Why because more and more “sicko’s and drug users” are obtaining weapons !!! I believe in the right to carry and have a permit myself, but things are not under control , because the negative and criminal element have the right to get guns and use any means the same a the honest and noncriminal element!!!

        I have no problem with responsible gun ownership either but it’s becoming a problem, and I feel they need to be a little more diligent who they are letting buy guns. When you see the dogs that are being shot lately, it shows a lack of caring and compassion and someone lacking these qualities need to be looked at closer before given a gun. It’s not just animals getting killed, people are too, most often by someone that probably shouldn’t have been allowed a gun. We live semi in the country and the gun fire I hear is becoming a little disconcerting! I fear for my dogs even though they never leave the yard.

    “Dogs are dumped and the area residence feed what they can”? Why aren’t these dogs being gathered up by Animal control so they don’t get shot like this? And why are these POS hunters not being charged for shooting the dogs. Something needs to be changed here!
