Lawton, Fort Sill Rallies to Help a Stray Dog That Has a Bucket Stuck on Its Head
For the past 4 days, the good citizens of Lawton, Fort Sill have been trying to help a stay dog that has a bucket stuck on its head. Nicknamed "Buckhead" the poor dog hasn't been able to eat or drink for days now.
It all started back on Tuesday of this week (04-04-23) when the dog was first spotted. People attempted to help, but the dog kept running off, as you can imagine it must be very scared. So far no one can catch him.

People have organized on the local Facebook group Lawton Grapevine meeting up to try and help the dog. Unfortunately, at this time no one has been able to catch him and remove the bucket that's stuck on his head.
Time is running out. The longer he goes without food, water, and the ability to breathe properly the greater the health risk. Plus as scared as he is and running off when approached we don't want to see him run over.
For the past 4 days the story of "Buckethead" the dog has been the talk of the town
From the beginning, the Lawton Animal Welfare and the Humaine Society of Lawton have been notified and are doing what they can to locate and assist the dog. This along with all the volunteers who are out looking.
"Buckethead" has been seen near the baseball fields on 38th Street and roaming around it that general area. At least that's where he was last spotted. If you see him call Lawton Animal Welfare and notify them.
IF YOU SEE "BUCKETHEAD" CALL LAWTON ANIMAL WELFARE AT (580)-581-3219
You can also post it on Lawton Grapevine's public group page to let others know who are trying to help. Hopefully, someone will be able to remove the bucket soon, the poor dog has been stuck now for 4 long days.
