Poor RouXy

In June 2003, RouXy’s left rear paw had to be amputated. About 10 one morning, in a barn at the bottom of the lane, on the roadside, a steel-jaw trap imprisoned RouXy for twenty-four hours, stopping bloodflow. Last photo of four-legged RouXy on our balcony a few minutes before the accident. First photo with his stump below.

The gangrenous stump had to be treated for at least two months, a very painful treatment. RouXy never scratched nor bit.

(The owner of the barn, who had illegally set up the prohibited trap, is still alive, with his unharmed four limbs. There is no justice.)
