Shocked rescuers, acting on a tip-off about three dogs whimpering in cages, have discovered a stray collie buried alive on the Mediterranean island of Malta. The dog, nicknamed Star, had been bound, shot in the head 40 times with a high-powered pellet gun at close range, and buried. Her snout had also been wired shut. Star was whisked off to the local veterinary hospital and is now said to be in good health. A facebook page dedicated to her, called Star:the dog that lived, and already has 50,000 members. It also hopes to raise awareness to animal cruelty in general. The police are now searching for the people responsible for Star’s awful experience.
