Dog found in distressed after a porcupine quill pierced

Goa: A stray dog found in distressed after a porcupine quill pierced through its jaw was recently rescued from his misery, at Verem, Bardez. The dog had been evading people for a while. Despite attempts by animal lovers to lure the canine it remained unattainable. The quill was later yanked out by retired officer of the department of information & publicity, John Aguiar, who gained the animal’s trust by calling out to it.Rakhi Puri saw that one of the stray fur buddies she often feeds had landed itself in the unfortunate situation.

In a bid to rescue the animal, Puri and her friends set up a trap cage laden with food inside it and set up a trail of canned meat to lure the dog into it. While they waited for the dog to take the bait, Aguiar who was on his evening walk saw him distressed and decided to help. After some coaxing, the dog dropped its defensive guard and let Aguiar approach him. While he petted the dog with one hand, he cautiously moved the other to pull the quill out of the animal’s mouth.
