The owner of two friendly Huskies in Audubon, Minnesota is grieving over the death of one of his dogs and hoping the other dog that had been seriously injured will survive, reports WDay6News.
John Houle had been searching for his Huskies since Wednesday after he believes someone intentionally coaxed the dogs away out of the yard and away from their home. Sadly, Houle found the first dog named Denali about a mile away; the dog was seriously injured, but still alive. The other Husky, Diego, was not so lucky and was dead when Houle found him. Both dogs had been shot at close range and pummeled with BB pellets. Radiographs showed Denali to have been shot with 40 pellets in his front two legs.
And the questions remains … why would anyone want to harm two very friendly dogs who loved playing in the snow, loved playing with children and loved life?
“Neither one of them would hurt a fly,” Houle stated.
Denali is expected to recover, but will lose one of his legs. Diego will be buried at his home. Anyone with information is asked to call the Becker County Sheriff’s Office. Help these sweet dogs find some justice. Someone knows who did this to two innocent animals.
