Journey's vet spoke with me this morning and she wants to leave it alone unless she develops some kind of issue, as digging around will actually cause more trauma than the small pellet would. On the other hand, if it looks angry, inflamed, starts draining gunk, I'll have to go in and have it opened and the thing removed. But for now she is satisfied with just keeping it clean and dry and letting nature take its course.
I wish I had power in the barn to set up a camera out in the front. Though if the person was in our woods next to the road though, you'd never see them. People sometimes make me really sad. They hurt each other, and shoot at animals for entertainment. It is disheartening to say the least!
