Some images in this video may be disturbing to some viewers.
This is a public service announcement....
This happened LOCALLY to a family pet...right here in Amherst NH!
A wild animal (Vet believes it was a bobcat) attacked a family pet and now he is fighting for his life.
Max was in his OWN yard when this attack happened. It was quick and vicious. His humans were home when this happened!
Things you can do to help prevent this:
Do not leave your dogs outside unattended
Fence in your yard
Get an outdoor light
Do not leave garbage out
Avoid using bushes - coyotes like to hide in those places
Keep your dog leashed on walks
If you do encounter a wild animal - be calm, be big, be loud. Do everything you can to look intimidating.
Report sightings in your area
FYI to anyone that uses paypal -where it says: Under special instructions: Write: "Please note: this $ goes towards MAX in Amherst NH"
This rescue is located in NY but saves dogs from kill shelters in the South and rehomes them mostly in New England - This is where MAX was rescued from.
You can also make donations to - Ponemah Veterinary Hospital which is where Max was treated and will continue to be treated
