It’s going to be a long road to recovery for one Wayne County dog, who was shot in the right eye.
Last week a dog named “Cooper” went missing in North Rose. The family went to work putting up signs, getting the word out that their dog was missing — having one Facebook Page pick up on the missing dog. The family was reportedly putting up ‘missing’ posters when they got word that their dog had been found.
State Police said that Cooper had been located, but suffered a shot in the right eye. The photos were gruesome, showing just how lucky the dog was to be alive. Cooper’s North Rose family, the Chrisley’s were stunned to learn that he was still alive. State Police said they believe the dog was shot at with a shotgun at close range —
The result: Cooper’s right eye had been shot out of it’s head, the bullet spray narrowly missing it’s brain.
Cooper is at Williamson Animal Hospital recovering after one successful operation. Several more will be required, and Cooper is expected to make a recovery despite the fact that he had been shot in the face.
State Police are investigating the incident, but no arrests have been made yet. The Chrisley family says that this is not the first incident involving a dog being shot in the neighborhood. Law enforcement in the area has not been able to elaborate on that subject.
