Owner Wants To Know Why Dog Was Shot

Posted: Updated:

STANFORD, Ky (LEX 18) -- A Stanford man wants to know why someone shot his 6-year-old dog over the weekend.

Clarence Dewitt said he didn't even notice his six-year-old Beagle had been shot at first. He said at first, he noticed Rusty wasn't looking good.

“Rusty has always been a happy dog, so after we found out he had been shot, we just can't figure out why,” said Dewitt.

He noticed a few spots on Rusty, but at first, he just wondered if another dog got loose and hurt him.

Dewitt took Rusty to the vet and that's when doctors found bits of metal fragments.

“After we took him to the vet. They were able to cover the wounds and stuff. It was clear he had been shot by a .22 (caliber),” he said.

Rusty is now recovering, but Dewitt said that he doesn't plan on letting the beagle outside as he heals. Dewitt told LEX 18 that he just wants to know, why?

“We keep him tied up there, in the middle of the property. So it's not like he's got access to anybody that would care what he was doing. But he wasn't doing anything. So somebody had to come to the middle of the property to shoot him. Because they say he was shot at close range,” said Dewitt.

If you have any information on this case, contact Stanford Police.
