A dog, apparently shot at point blank range in the face, was found in South Bend, Indiana. Local authorities are searching for the person(s) responsible for the cruel act of violence.
According to the South Bend Animal Care and Control (SBACC), the chocolate colored, female pit bull was found on Saturday. She was suffering from “clear signs of abuse,” including a gunshot wound inside of her mouth – the bullet traveled into her shoulder.
Tragically, the injuries were determined to be too severe for the abused dog to survive and she was humanely euthanized, reported WSBT News.
SBACC is hoping that someone will recognize this dog and come forward with information that will help the authorities solve the crime. The animal-welfare agency provided information about where the dog was found:
Does anyone recognize this sweet girl? She came in on Saturday with clear signs of abuse and was located in the Medora/Wilber/Anderson/
King street area
The agency added:
A police report has been filed and ballistics will be run on the recovered bullet. We ask that anyone with information please contact us or SBPD reference incident # 17-105909.
