Out of the frying pan and into the fire? No sooner is Ever stable and her surgical and hospital bill covered than we have another emergency medical case. Meet Bear. This big, gentle boy was found in pool of blood, shot in the chest. Rescue Brigade Becky B. quickly got Bear to the clinic. He’s lost a lot of blood. The bullet hit his shoulder blade, bounced off and lodged under the opposite armpit. He also has a fractured radius that will require plating. He has lost a lot of blood. Bear is resting at the clinic on IV fluids and antibiotics. He is currently unable to stand, either too weak from the blood loss or from the pain in his leg.
We will find out more tomorrow. Meanwhile the shelter and vet clinic staff have fallen hard for this sweet boy. They say he is a love bug, despite everything. I'll update when we know more.
