Opinion: Some awful person shot and starved sweet Luna

Chris Campbell

I’m angry today.

I’m angry because there are so many terrible people in the world. Take, for example, a poor excuse for a human being who shot and starved a dog named Luna.

The BC SPCA is asking members of the public to help with the costs of care for Luna who was shot, is severely emaciated and is recovering from surgery.

There is an open cruelty investigation into Luna’s case.

Animal control officers provided a live trap and an SPCA special provincial constable monitored the trap multiple times each day. After over a week, the SPCA was successfully able to trap the injured three-year-old dog.

“Luna had been walking around for days with half of her jaw missing due to a gunshot wound. She immediately went in for emergency reconstructive surgery,” says SPCA North Cariboo District animal centre services manager Alex Schare.

Luna’s X-rays, surgery, medication, vaccinations and follow up care is expected to cost $3,230. She will be recovering in a foster home.

“Luna is a playful young dog with a remarkable amount of energy despite her injuries and weakened state,” says Schare.
