ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Task Force are asking for the public’s help in locating the person responsible for shooting a woman’s dog Monday afternoon.

The shooting occurred around 5 p.m. near the intersection of Harney and Thrush avenues, in the Walnut Park East neighborhood.

The owner said her two-year-old German shepherd mix, named Cutie, had wandered from the yard. The owner heard a gunshot a short time later and found Cutie bleeding in the alley.

Police escorted Cutie and the owner to HSMO’s Animal Medical Center of Mid-America, where the owner surrendered the animal.

Veterinarians determined Cutie had been shot once in the right shoulder area. Doctors are worried they may have to amputate her front right leg as a result.

The Humane Society of Missouri is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the HSMO at 314-647-4400.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
