Coal was found in the subdivision near Tanglewood Drive just outside of St. Robert on Monday evening with a gunshot wound to his left hind leg. The individuals that found Coal called the local police department who would not help since they were one block outside of the city limits. They then called the Sheriff's Department who simply told them to call us (Pulaski County Humane Society) rather than investigate the incident. As a volunteer, board member and foster home for Pulaski County Humane Society, I was called and immediately went to pick this wonderful boy up and he is now in my care.

The gunshot wound caused a serious fracture to his leg and he underwent surgery on Wednesday. He is on complete bed rest for the next four weeks. We are still not out of the woods and it is still possible that he may lose the leg, though the vets are doing their best to save it.

A ChipIn fund has been started at to help in his growing medical expenses.

A Facebook page has also been started for those that wish to keep up to date on his recovery.

We are working on it. I am waiting on the detailed report from the vet to go along with the x-rays and then we are going to visit the Sheriff's Department in person.

The animal control officer for St. Robert was not even aware of the incident until I told her about it on Wednesday when I visited her to pull the last of the dogs from their kill shelter - we try to keep their shelter empty for obvious reasons. Whoever answered the call at the police station did not bother to pass on the information to her since it was outside of city limits by a whole block, however she has requested a copy of the report and x-rays from the vet for her records as soon as I get it. Just because the dog was found outside city limits does not mean the incident happened there. We already have some leads from the general public as a result of all of our internet postings.
