Dog Found in Camping Bag Diagnosed with Cancer

The dog that was found in a camping bag in January by hunters in Northern Wisconsin was diagnosed with cancer, according to the Columbia County Humane Society.

The organization posted on its Facebook page Tuesday that Misty has a 90 day life expectancy.

“We are very saddened by this news but are determined to give Misty the best days of her life in her foster home. She is loved, cared for and has great foster parents who adore her. We will keep Misty's health and quality of life in mind when making decisions about her and will do our very best to keep her healthy and happy as long as we can. Please hug your healthy pets and keep Misty in your thoughts,” posted the Humane Society.

In January, the owner admitted to hitting Misty in the head with a hammer before abandoning her in the parking lot of a Columbia County hunting area.

Benson told the deputy she took Misty for a ride because she thought the dog was dying, but she couldn’t afford to euthanize her.
