It's believed Monty might have been trying to escape a Coyote attack as there were signs of bite marks on him when he was finally brought to the animal trauma centre in Mississauga. This would also explain why Monty strayed from his yard and into the ravine located behind Dar & Jess's home in order to escape the attack. Unfortunately this poor loveable animal found himself in the path of an oncoming vehicle once he exited the ravine.
When Monty did not return when called by Darlene she and her good friend and neighbor Melissa went in search of him. After many minutes of franticly searching they found him struck on the side of the road bleeding, not moving, in pain and very bad shape. Although frantic, Darlene with the help of Melissa rushed Monty to a local Grimsby vet and then to the Animal Trauma Centre in Mississauga. (I will mention that although the person that struck Monty did not bother to stop other motorist passing by did stop and offer their assistance).
Upon arrival everything was done to try and save Monty's life and get him stable including blood transfusions, plasma, spinal / internal x-rays, examinations etc.
Unfortunatley after fighting for 2 days Monty surcombed to his injuries.
Anyone with a pet knows that emergency medical treatment for an animal can be extremly costly and most people don't plan for an expense of this magnitude. Especially the type of treatment that poor Monty had to endure for 2 days.
If you think you might be able to help Dar and Jess out with this expense I know they would be VERY, VERY greatfull. If all our friends, family animal lovers etc can spare any amount it will be greatly appreciated. Even just a little bit from many really will go along way in helpig ease their burden.
Many, many thanks to anyone able to help Dar & Jess out during this traumatic, heartbreaking and stressfull time. I can honestly say without a doubt that I know they would do the same for anyone currently going through what they are.
RIP Mr Burns..You are very good boy and will be missed terribly.
