A sheepdog that managed to kill eight coyotes while guarding his herd of sheep and goats is recovering from injuries sustained during the confrontation.
The dog, named Casper, works on John Wierwiller’s farm in Georgia and managed to keep the coyotes at bay in a fight that lasted for more than half an hour.
Following the dogfight Casper seemed suddenly vanished for two days.
‘We knew he was hurt because we found parts of his tail and blood and other things, so we were worried,’ Wierwiller told WAGA.
Eventually, Casper returned with his injuries clearly showing. The dog had gaping wounds to his neck and side.
‘He was kinda looking at me like, ‘Boss, stop looking at how bad I look, just take care of me,” Wierwiller explained. ‘It looked like a coyote grabbed his skin and peeled it right off.’
The LifeLine Animal Project, an organization with a mission to end euthanasia of healthy animals, stepped in to help raise money to cover all of Casper’s hospital bills, managing to generate $15,000.
The sheepdog still being cared for by veterinary staff at the organization more than a month after the attack.
