Authorities investigate dog shot between the eyes with an arrow

In Walker County, Alabama, a dog was found on Wednesday roaming the streets with an arrow sticking out from between her eyes. The Walker County Humane Society has stated it is purely a miracle the pup survived as the arrow narrowly missed hitting his brain.

According to AbcNews, people in the Pocohontas area spotted the dog and notified animal control. For nearly a week, the dog was so frightened she eluded capture. Animal control officers used food laced with a sedative to capture the dog.

She was taken to the Farmstead Veterinarian Medical Center in Jasper where the arrow was removed. Technicians at the hospital have been calling the friendly pup Arrow. The dog will remain under medical care for the next few weeks to make sure there is no neurological damage.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information that could lead to a conviction. In this case, the person faces first degree animal abuse charges punishable by a one to ten year prison sentence and/or a $15,000 fine. Anyone who knows the person responsible for the dog’s injuries or recognizes this dog, is asked to contact the Walker County Sheriff’s Office at (205) 302-6464.

Get well soon Arrow. We hope you find justice.

    Whoever did that to that dog needs an arrow shot between their eyes! There is no justification to shooting a defenseless animal! May the person responsible for this act of cruelty rot in hell!

    I hope this disgusting moron can be the target of many many arrows in all the right places (perhaps poisonous ones)! May he spend years in jail and forever in hell!

    God bless little Arrow and his rescuers!

    Whoever did this needs to be found ASAP! That thing is a danger to everyone it comes into contact with: no pet, mate, or child is safe with this creature.

    It deserves the absolute MAXIMUM sentence possible with no plea deals.

    I really do hate people sometimes.

    Please catch this sub human and hit him with everything possible. This HUMAN (using that term very loosely) needs the hammer to come down on them really hard.

    Yes, someone knows who did this and if they have an ounce of conscience they will step up and turn this maggot in – another innocent animal treated like trash by some punk who needs that arrow shoved so far down their throat that they choke – that would be justice for Arrow.
