Pet dog shot while walking with owner near Qualicum fish hatchery
Mar 01 2012
A woman's walk with her two dogs near the Qualicum fish hatchery this week ended with one of the animals being shot.
Oceanside RCMP said the dog, a malinois-wolf cross, had ventured into a field out of the owner's sightline. She heard a shot and saw some birds fly off, then heard her dog yelping.
The dog was bleeding when she got to it, and a veterinarian later confirmed it had been shot. The animal might have sustained nerve damage.
Police said the shooting appears to have been intentional. It happened about 5:45 p.m. on Tuesday, and police would like to hear from anyone with information. Call 250-248-6111.
