A local animal rescue group is trying to find out who shot a dog found lying in the doorway of a home in Clearfield County. The president of the group One Dog at a Time (ODAAT) says a four-year-old-mastiff mix was found wounded in Hawk Run. It’s believed the dog was shot sometime between 9 pm Monday and Tuesday afternoon when she was found.
The shooting left a large hole in the dog’s face, broke some of her teeth, and sent shrapnel throughout her face. She also suffered a wound to her foot.
Fortunately, ODAAT rescued the animal and arranged for the owner to surrender her. She was taken To Metzger Animal Hospital in State College for surgery and is now recovering.
One Dog at a Time President Kari Coble calls the shooting deliberate, and believes it occurred at close range.
Cobe says, “This dog was absolutely shot and the fact of the matter is she suffered before she was found. When she was found, she was losing a lot of blood.” And she adds, “It’s an atrocity. It’s just such a shame and she’s a sweet dog.”
ODAAT is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot the dog.
