Someone shot a large female mastiff dog several times last week, and no one knows who did it. This person is horrible. Someone also owns the dog, has likely known she's been missing for at least a week, but has yet to peep up. This person seems horrible. Both would be less horrible if they'd give the Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County a call.
The News Tribunereports that Pierce County Animal Control responded to reports of two dogs loose in the area around the 30600 block of 118th Avenue East in Graham last week.
When they got there they found one dog, a 4-year-old female mastiff lying in a ditch, severely injured with several infected bullet wounds, and the other, a chow mix, uninjured nearby.
The dog's wounds appeared to be at least a week old.
Both the mastiff and the chow mix are being held at the Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County. Animal Control Manager Tim Anderson says he believes they belong to the same person.
Neighbors say they look like two dogs named Bella (mastiff) and Grizz (chow mix).
Grizz is available for adoption.
For Bella, rescuers are unsure if she'll ever fully recover.
