The KSPCA received a call from an animal lover reporting of a dog that had been caught in a snare. Somebody had set up a snare to trap mongooses in the neighborhood, but unfortunately the dog got ensnared. She tried to free herself but in the process, the wire got stuck in her neck.
As days went by, the wire sunk deeper into the dog’s skin and the wound got worse. As a result of the pain, she became very aggressive and the owner could not get close to her.
The KSPCA team applied their expertise and darted the dog, and she was brought to the KSPCA shelter. The vet was was able to remove the wire from her neck. She is still undergoing treatment, and is looking much better now.
