A Minnesota family is seeking answers after someone fatally shot their beloved dog, who was inside of a fenced yard in Plymouth. According to KARE 11 News, someone shot the Docken family’s Springer spaniel, Porter, on Wednesday afternoon – the pellet lodged near the dog’s heart and he died as a result.
Porter was almost six years of age – in fact, his birthday would have been this coming Monday if his life hadn’t been cruelly cut short. Porter’s owner, Sarah, was home when the crime took place – she heard her dog yelp and immediately called him in, but the damage was already done. Porter was rushed to a veterinarian for help, but he lost too much blood to be saved.
The shooting has been reported to the Plymouth Police Department and the family is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for ending Porter’s life.
