Sadly I must share with the RISKKO site Dog News followers a tragic story of harm caused to an innocent Dog called Lucy. Lucy had to be operated upon after eating Dog Food laced with razor sharp scalpel blades at around mid-day on Easter Sunday morning.
This horrific story took place while Lucy was out with her owner taking an Easter walk along the south-west bank of the Mallertshofener Lake which is in Oberschließheim not far from Munich, Germany.
The dog disappeared for a moment when she popped into some bushes near the path for a quick sniff around. It turned out later that Lucy had discovered, hidden under the bushes, some tasty looking sausage which was loosely wrapped in Aluminium foil.
What the poor dog didn’t realise was that some hateful person had hidden razor sharp scalpel blades inside the sausage. Clearly this unknown person wanted to kill some unsuspecting dog in a most horrific way.
Lucy came out of the bushes looking very pained. She stopped moving and started shaking and coughing. Her owner knew something was wrong and looked under the bushes. Here he saw the dog-bait laced with the razor blades and knew immediately that Lucy must have been eating this awful mixture.
Fortunately Lucy’s owner had the good sense to get her immediately to the local veterinary surgeon who took an x-ray of the dog. The pictures clearly identified that a scalpel blade was lodged inside the dogs stomach. There was no alternative but to operate on the dog under full anaesthetic and try to remove this horrendous instrument of death.
Fortunately the operation took place quickly enough to save the dog and it is expected that Lucy will make a full recovery. Her owner had originally acquired the dog from a Spanish canine rescue centre. Following this new escapade over the Easter holidays he can now claim to have saved this little cross breed’s life a second time.
So whenever you are out walking with your canine friends be cautious – some evil people are determined to cause dogs hardship or pain. Some of them will even go as far as canine murder. RISKKO’s advice to all his doggy friends out walking is ‘sniffing is OK but don’t eat what you don’t know‘.
