In a disturbing crime out of Mobile, Alabama, a one-year-old dog doing nothing but wagging his tail was shot in the face on Wednesday night as three men walked by while the dog and his owner fished off Rangeline Road, reports the Fox News.
According to the dog’s owner, army veteran Pete Brown, he and his friendly pit bull Gracy had been fishing in the same spot where three other men had been seated. As the men walked by towards their car, Gracy walked up to them with her tail wagging – one of the men without warning pulled out a gun and shot Gracy in the face. The unidentified men held Brown at gunpoint until they drove off in their car.
Gracy was shot through the snout with a hollow point bullet; the bullet exited her throat. On Thursday, the dog had surgery and is expected to recover.
“She was suffering and whimpering a lot, and just bubbling out of her nose; she was pouring blood,” described Brown about his very gentle dog on the way to the emergency veterinary hospital. “The whole ride over was miserable for her, and she woke up a couple times, and I just petted her and loved her the whole way.”
Mobile Police have not found the person responsible for shooting Gracy, but the man faces animal cruelty and menacing charges. Anyone with information is asked to notify the police.
A GoFundMe account has been set up to help with Gracy’s very expensive veterinary expenses. Get well soon Gracy.
