Goat Cruelty - "Atrocious"
Jessie the goat was dumped from a car and thrown into a ditch on Thompson Rd, Cranbourne by a cruel and heartless man on a 38 degree day and left to die.
Jessie's cruel fate was seen by a passing motorist, Jason, who thankfully quickly did a u-turn to see if the animal was still alive. She was indeed but very limp and barely able to keep her eyes open, Jason immediately contacted us at Australian Animal Rescue and bought the very sick goat to us.
Sharon, along with the help of volunteer Josh got to work on her, immediately administering IV fluids and a Vitamin B injection as well as a good dose of antibiotics. Jessie's condition was serious as she was emaciated, dehydrated and unable to hold her head up. It took 5 days for Jessie to be able to walk 3 metres without collapsing.
Barrie Tapp of 1800 Animal Cruelty has contacted Sergeant Gavin Buchan from Cranbourne Police station to report the act of cruelty as well as all the local papers in hope of getting some answers.
After 3 weeks and lots of treatment and care by Sharon and the wonderful volunteers, Jessie was running around and doing a great job of pruning the rose bushes. Jessie has moved on to live at Clunes Victoria and is one very happy and spoilt girl.
