A family in Sylva, North Carolina, is searching for answers after their beloved dog was shot and killed near their home. The Yorkipoo, named “Fiona,” lived with the Baxter family, and earlier this week, someone cruelly ended her life.
Jeff Baxter went to Facebook with a public plea for help – he wrote:
Sometime between 5 p.m .Monday and 9 p.m. Tuesday our sweet Fiona was shot and killed on our land beside our house. We live off Greens Creek toward the top of Brooks Branch road in a usually peaceful neighborhood. We have an open case with the sheriff’s office and we are looking for information.
Fiona isn’t the only victim of animal cruelty; Baxter explained:
As it turns out this has happened before in our subdivision to two other dogs, this needs to stop before someone else has to deal with this pain. Please share. Even if you cannot help directly yourself, sharing may get this to someone who knows something.
The family has offered a $500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for this case of animal cruelty. Anyone who has information about this case is asked to email: firstname.lastname@example.org
