A sizable reward has been offered in an animal cruelty case which left a puppy without one of his legs. According to the Post and Courier, the Charleston Animal Society has offered a $3,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and felony conviction of whoever shot a puppy in early December.
By the time the eight-month-old pup, dubbed L’il Buck, was found, one of his legs was so badly infected that it had to be amputated. Charleston Animal Society Director of Anti-Cruelty and Outreach Aldwin Roman has stated that all of the birdshot could not be removed, “Some of the buckshot that tore through his body is still in there, and unfortunately, it will remain for the rest of his life.”
The cruelty case is under investigation by Charleston County sheriff’s deputies, and the injured puppy continues his recuperation in a foster home. Lil Buck’s ongoing veterinary care has been made possible by donations to the animal shelter’s medical fund – click here to learn more about the fund, and how you can help.
