TEXAS: Dog shot over 30 times with pellet gun

The Humane Society of the United States is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­shooting a dog more than 30 times with a pellet gun.

News reports give the following account: Longview police officers found a brown and white male dog covered in blood near Richardson and Green Streets. Officers immediately contacted Longview Animal Control, who took the dog to the Humane Society of Northeast Texas. The dog was emaciated and had more than 30 pellets lodged in his skin. A broken leash attached to the dog indicates that he may have escaped from his owners’ yard or been taken. Officers also believe the suspect(s) held the leash during the shooting so the dog could not escape. Investigators place the time of the shooting between 7:30 – 11:45 a.m. on July 16. The dog has undergone surgery at Kimbrough Animal Hospital to remove his injured eye and is being treated for his wounds.

Getting the serious attention of law enforcement, prosecutors and the community in cases involving allegations of cruelty to animals is an essential step in protecting the community. The connection between animal cruelty and human violence is well documented. Studies show a correlation between animal cruelty and all manner of other crimes, from narcotics and firearms violations to battery and sexual assault.

“The terror and pain that this dog endured is unimaginable,” said Katie Jarl, Texas state director for The HSUS. “We hope this reward brings forward anyone with information about the suspects involved so that whoever committed this vicious crime can be brought to justice.”

Longview Police Department is investigating. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call (903) 237-1199.
