Unfortunately, Pistol Annie took a turn for the worse when she started showing symptoms of clostridium, a bacterial disease that can be deadly. A week later, she passed away.
When Mercy tested positive for clostridium too, Sale worried that Mercy was going to die as well.
But Mercy had a determination to live, according to Sale, and the vet team worked hard to save her life. After several days, Mercy’s fever finally broke and she regained her appetite.
