A five-month-old puppy in South Carolina somehow survived a gruesome injury from an arrow being shot into her head on Tuesday night.
The rescue dog named Loca was found on her family’s back porch with an arrow lodged in her head, according to Nikki Sauer, practice manager at Paws and Claws Animal Clinic.
The attack occurred in the area of Calhoun, South Carolina, Sauer wrote, and the attacker remains at large.
‘To the sorry SOB who thought this was ok to do I hope you rot in hell. I’m not sure if you’re aware but this sweet 5 month old puppy has a family and her mom is a police officer,’ Sauer wrote on her own Facebook page. ‘They have cameras on their property and I pray to God they caught you on at least one of them.’
