Dog left with skull full of shrapnel after botched shooting
Bay of Islands SPCA staff have slated those responsible for shooting a dog in the head and leaving it to suffer rather than ensuring it was dead.
A young black male German Shepherd, with no tattoo or microchip, was found on a rural property on Classen Rd near Omanaia, between Kaikohe and Opononi, by residents a week ago who then called authorities.
Bay of Islands SPCA inspector Kaye Vezey said the dog was holding his head to one side and was staggering as he walked. MORE>>
