gees he was lucky not to lose an eye. also not good for our wildlife. probably best to keep them controlled and not be subjected to the removal process, he may of swallowed a few and they may get wedged in the digestive track leaving a suffering dog and a large bill. IMO.

cheers

I think they said some actually punctured the heart and lungs, not sure I'll have to re read the article.
Either way it's one lucky dog but imagine ya dog coming back to camp with those stuck in it.
