Donegal on Thursday 23rd January.The local Dog Warden initially responded to the call and ISPCA Inspector Kevin McGinley was called in to investigate.The length of heavy duty fencing wire which was wrapped around the dog’s neck is believed to have been used to tether the animal.The wire had cut into the dog’s flesh leaving a deep open wound.The female collie, who is aged approximately 2 to 3 years, is currently being treated in a local veterinary surgery. When fit, she will be taken to the ISPCA’s National Animal Centre to complete her rehabilitation.“This is a very serious injury” commented Inspector McGinley, “but we are confident that she will make a full recovery.
