Police say they couldn’t find anyone who witnessed the shooting.

The Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Task Force also responded. The dog was turned over to the society for care before it died.

It was euthanized because of the injury and extensive blood loss.

    More guns! MORE!

    Be SURE to vote AGAINST even more guns and even less regulation and enforcement: VOTE NO ON AMENDMENT 5.

    We already have the right to bear arms, thank you very much. Sick people like whoever shot this dog prove it – again and again.

    While you’re at it, VOTE NO ON ALL THE AMENDMENTS. They are ALL phony and will cost YOU higher taxes. ALL of them.

      That just shows the type of person you are. One of my neighbors has a pit bull and it is one of the most quiet, and most friendly dogs I have ever seen. Dont judge a dog because of its breed.
