A Pointy Predicament

This was not one of my patients, but an article in a veterinary journal. This is an 18lb neutered male pointer mix. He’s fine now after a rhinotomy (nose surgery), but can you see what his predicament was? His owners have no idea how that got there. It was in there for about 3 weeks before he started acting strange, having trouble eating, and had nasal discharge. Oops, gave you a clue where to look! (I also left the titles on the pics so you’d know in case you couldn’t see it in the x-rays)
