Buford, GA (AP) - A driver on a Gwinnett County road said she saw a black and white head sticking out of a garbage bag on the road, and braced herself for the worst.
Jamie Contreras told the Gwinnett Daily Post that she knew it was an animal of some kind, and was expecting a dismembered body.
Then she watched Friday as the Boston terrier worked his way out
of the garbage bag. The dog was still alive, but badly hurt.
She said part of his skin had rubbed away, revealing tendons and
muscles. One eye was hanging out.
She and other motorists called 911, and the animal is now being
cared for at an animal hospital. Two surgeries were performed Friday, including one to remove the dog's right eye. More surgery is planned for Monday.
