An obviously wounded, bleeding dog was rescued by a young couple
traveling on Route 9 about 4:30 p.m. Friday in the New Gretna section of
Bass River, Burlington County.
Believing the dog had been hit by a car,
the couple took the dog to the Stafford Veterinary Hospital for
treatment, where veterinarians there determined the dog had a gunshot
wound that broke teeth, pierced its tongue and left a bullet lodged in
the pup’s neck, said Janice Achey, office manager at the hospital, according to a story in The Asbury Park Press.
