LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) -Animal Care & Control is seeking the public’s help in finding out who shot a dog with a blow dart.

Officials say this horrendous act happened in the Masterson Station neighborhood. Champ’s owners took the dog to a veterinarian, but with the financial possibility of the procedure costing $2000-$5000, they were going to have him euthanized.

Thankfully, a vet technician told the family if they surrendered the dog, she would take the animal and have the surgery done. Champ is now expected to recover.

If you have information on who did this, please contact 859-255-9033 x229.
