The Fond du Lac animal shelter manager says it appears two puppies injured when bleach was poured on them are improving. Police say an eight year old boy became angry after one of the puppies was play-biting and poured bleach on the dog before tossing the animal in a trash dumpster. Some of the bleach spilled on a second puppy. Fond du lac animal shelter manager Renee Webb says on Sunday night the veterinarian did not think at least one of the puppies would survive But Webb says the condition of the puppy has improved.
Webb says the puppies are still not out of the woods. "The next four to five days at any point their lungs could literally just shut down," Webb told AM 1170 WFDL's Between the Lines program. "There's also the ulcers on the mouth, throat, tongue and stomach that would encourage a puppy to stop eating." But Webb says the shelter has ordered feeding tubes just in case. Police say the mother was aware of the incident but did nothing to intervene.
