Dog was found with 16-inch arrow through head after getting shot with crossbow

Dog was found with 16-inch arrow through head after getting shot with crossbow


It never ceases to shock us the cruel things people will do to innocent animals. One poor dog was found during a shocking condition:




He was shot by a crossbow, and still had the arrow lodged in his head.

The 16-inch arrow went all the way through the highest of the dog’s head, but miraculously he survived.

Officers from Nassau County Animal Services picked the four-year-old dog up and rushed him to a veterinary hospital for emergency surgery.



Amazingly, they were ready to remove the arrow, and therefore the dog doesn’t appear to possess any serious damage.

The officers dubbed the dog “Unicorn.”

With Unicorn safe and recovering, the large question was who shot the poor dog with an arrow.



But it didn’t take long for the officers to seek out the culprit: Carey Wilson, a 37-year-old Nassau County resident, was arrested for felony animal cruelty.

She admitted to the crime, but defended her actions by saying she wasn't trying to harm or kill the dog but “scare it off” after finding him “peeing on her automobile tire .”



“The dog doesn’t want to go away , so I grabbed a crossbow, my intentions weren't to kill the dog, but to undertake to urge the message across, ‘Get out the yard,” Wilson told Action News Jax. But the network also notes that the police report calls her a liar.

Meanwhile, Unicorn’s original owner, Nick Sweat, had to surrender the dog to animal control because he couldn’t afford the medical bills: “We enjoyed the dog. He’s an honest dog, he’s a family dog, wouldn’t hurt anybody,” he said.

                                                                                 

But luckily, Unicorn is now doing great.

Nassau County Animal Services announced that Unicorn features a new family and is “enjoying his new life.”
