Sheriff’s Office investigating animal abuse case

The Stearns County Sheriffs Office is investigating a case of animal abuse where a male yellow Labrador was allegedly shot with a pellet gun. Deputies received a call from Avon Township from a resident who discovered the injured dog lying under a tree. A deputy brought the dog to a veterinarian who determined the dog had been shot four times in the face and twice in the hindquarters. The veterinarian believes the shots came from a pellet gun. Several of the shots penetrated the dog's muzzle and broke the dog's jaw. The dog was treated and is now being housed by Stearns County. Sheriffs investigators are attempting to locate the owner of the dog and identify the person or persons responsible for the injuries. Anyone with information regarding the case can call the dispatch center at 320-251-4240.
