Our good boy was shot in the woods on private property while we were all out on our morning browse...10 goats, 2 dogs and myself. It could've easily been any one of us!
UPDATE: Newell has been at the Slate River Vet Clinic since Tuesday afternoon...we are trying to contain the infection around his bullet wound...the exit wound specifically. Progress has been made but very little. Dr. Auten has done a culture and has sent it to Virginia Tech so that we can better know what type of bacteria we're dealing with and use an antibiotic that this bacteria hasn't become resistant to. As you can imagine the vet bills are climbing. Any donation in any amount is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Citation Reads: While conducting Herd Security SGT. Newell came under intense enemy fire. Although severely wounded he held his ground forcing the enemy to retreat. He then attempted to rejoin friendly forces still carrying on the Mission until a reactionary force arrived.
This Bravery is in keeping with the Highest Traditions of His Herd.
