Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who shouldn’t be permitted to own or be around animals.

Hayden Howard discovered that her dog wasn’t feeling well a few years ago.

While she was inside, her English Mastiff Jackson had been playing in the backyard. It appeared as though he was covered in bug bites when she called him in.

However, upon closer inspection, she found that the reality was even worse.

In actuality, Jackson had numerous gunshot wounds.

”I was completely shocked, I didn’t know what to think,” Hayden told WXIN.

he immediately rushed Jackson to the veterinarian after realizing he had been shot. Upon examining Jackson, the veterinarian discovered a large number of little bullets that had been fired from a BB pistol.

“There was one stuck under his eyelid, one in his ear, one in his knee, they were everywhere,” Hayden says.

Jackson’s fur had to be shaved almost entirely by the veterinarian in order to remove the numerous plastic shells. He had to leave 20 rounds where they were and extracted a total of 27 bullets.

The veterinarian also discovered 20 other bullet holes throughout Jackson’s tiny frame.

He’d received almost 70 gunshot wounds.

“I have never seen an animal shot that many times,” Assistant Chief Craig Hayes of the Seymour Police Department stated, “It’s a very bad case and it’s sad to see.”

I find it incomprehensible that someone could do such a horrible thing to a dog, especially when the dog has never harmed anyone.

Police were pursuing the person who was thought to be the source of the gunfire, who was thought to be in a neighboring yard.

They quickly discovered that a neighbor’s house had a rifle stashed inside, along with some ammunition.

The Daily Mail stated that the cops discovered methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in his residence along with a BB pistol and pellets.

It is my sincere desire that the offender receives a lengthy prison sentence and bears the consequences of their actions.

Sincerely, I think they should never be allowed to approach an animal after they leave.

According to Hayden, Jackson is healing nicely despite his significant trauma.

Even though some news sources frequently refer to BB and pellet guns as “toys” or “fake,” these are actual weapons with serious potential for harm.

A crime should be treated as such when it is committed using a pellet or BB gun. It’s a real gun, and those who use it against innocent people ought to face appropriate legal consequences.

I sincerely hope Jackson recovers quickly and is able to play happily in his backyard once more.
