June 25, 2018

LMAS seeking information, FOMAS offers $500 reward    

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (June 25, 2018) – Louisville Metro Animal Services is investigating the deathof a dog that was shot with an arrow in the Fairdale area, and a $500 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction for the unacceptable act of cruelty on a defenseless animal. 

Dog shot with arrow dies

 On Wednesday, June 21st at about 5p.m., a man brought to the LMAS shelter an approximately 2-year-old Jack Russell Terrier with a large arrow protruding through its body.  Despite the efforts of staff, the dog died on the way to Jefferson Animal Hospital.

The LMAS Animal Control Division is investigating, and the non-profit Friends of Metro Animal Services is offering a $500 reward for information in this case. Shooting a pet with an arrow is a criminal act.  

The dog was found Wednesday afternoon in the vicinity of the 8900 block of Brown Austin Rd. in Fairdale.  The approximately 2-foot long arrow entered the dog’s left hip area and was protruding from the right side of its abdomen, near the left shoulder. The dog did not have a microchip and so far, its owner has not been located.

LMAS Animal Control is interviewing residents in the area in an effort to get justice for a helpless dog that suffered tremendously before its death.

LMAS will gladly accept donations to boost the $500 reward being offered by FOMAS. Anyone with information about the dog’s owner, or knows who may be responsible for its fatal injuries is asked to contact Louisville Metro Police at 574-LMPD.
