Horrifying injuries of English Mastiff puppy which was shot 60 TIMES with pellets and BBs

These are the shocking injuries of a dog which was shot at 60 times by pellets and BBs.

Jackson, a 100lb English Mastiff, has been left with holes across his body and still has some of the fragments lodged inside him.

His owner, 24-year-old Hayden Howard from Seymour, Indiana, said she at first thought the marks were bug bites.

 

Her neighbor Tim Woodward has been arrested for drug charges and police believe he may have been responsible for the attack on the dog.

They discovered a BB gun and pellets at his home and are waiting for laboratory tests to match them to the animal’s injuries.

 

Jackson’s owner first thought the marks were insect bites. On Saturday, she took the puppy to the vet after realizing they were in fact holes.

‘He had some marks on him and we thought they were bug bites and stuff. But then Saturday night I started noticing holes on him,.

‘I was in shock, I didn’t even know what to think,’ she told KTLA.

Veterinarians shaved his hair back and discovered his skin had in fact been punctured dozens of times.  They removed 20 pellets and seven BBs.

Another 20 are still lodged in the animal’s body and they believe 20 more hit him but bounced off his body.

Police checked the home of her neighbors and found drug paraphernalia including marijuana and methamphetamine but no animal cruelty arrests have been made.

He was arrested on drugs charges and police are hopeful to bring an animal cruelty charge against him soon.

They found a BB gun and a pellet gun inside his home along with pellets which visually match those pulled out of the animal.

Seymour Police Department Assistant Chief Craig Hayes told DailyMail.com it was the worst animal cruelty case he had ever seen.

‘I have never seen an animal shot that many times. It’s a very bad case and it’s sad to see,’ he said.

He added he believed Woodward was under the influence of drugs when he attacked the animal with his weapons.
