WAILUKU (HawaiiNewsNow) – A Maui judge has denied a woman’s request to be released from jail after she allegedly attacked a dog with a machete. The 7-year-old dog, named Tommy Boy, suffered severe injuries and is still in an animal hospital. He underwent more than five hours of emergency surgery back in August. Maui Humane Society said bone-deep gashes were left from the dogs face all the way to the tip of his tail, which was ultimately amputated.
Tommy Boy was attacked by a machete in a parking lot in Paia. His bone-deep lacerations were across his forehead, across his back, and the tip of his tail. If Tommy Boy didn’t receive the immediate help from first-responders, our Humane Enforcement Officers and our on-call emergency Veterinarians, Tommy Boy would have knocked on death’s door. Thanks to our dedicated staff and volunteers to help him heal over the past 2 months, Tommy Boy has made a full recovery. Donate to help offset the cost of Tommy Boy’s medical expenses and care.
