Swain Co. Animal Abuse
A 6-week-old puppy is left for dead in Swain County.
It was rescued by the county's only animal shelter, PAWS Animal Rescue, in Bryson City. The puppy's name is Miracle and she was found two weeks ago. She's being slowly nursed back to health.
PAWS shelter director Beth Cline says Miracle's story is the latest in a string of animal abuse cases in Swain County. The county does not have animal control and Cline says that is a big part of the problem.
