Wis. Family Finds Dog Shot, Mutilated Near Their Home


NEWS. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. A WESTERN WISCONSIN FAMILY SAYS THEY FOUND THEIR BELOVED DOG SHOT AND MUTILATED NEAR THEIR HOME. THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE IS INVESTIGATING. THE NINE-YEAR-OLD BLACK LAB, SALLY, WAS FOUND DEAD’S OWNERS INITIALLY THOUGHT A CAR HIT HER UNTIL THEY SAW HER WINDS UP CLOSE. IT HAPPENED ALONG 120th AVENUE AND BALSAM LAKE. JEFF WAGNER TRAVELED TO POLK COUNTY AND SPOKE WITH FAMILY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED. I HAVE REALLY NO WORDS. IT’S INDESCRIBABLE. Reporter: THE PAIN HASN’T STOPPED FOR MAXINE FLOOR, MORE THAN A WEEK SHE LEARNED — AFTER SHE LEARNED HOW HER SON’S DOG DIED. HER SON SAYS SALLY WAS LET OUT AT NIGHT BUT NEVER CAME BACK. WHEN THEY FOUND HER DEAD NEAR THE ROAD THE NEXT MORNING, THEY ASSUMED A CAR HIT HER. I WAS ON MY WAY OVER. MY SON SAID SHE WAS SHOT. Reporter: FLOOR ANALYZED THE WIND, WHICH SHE SAYS WAS ON SALLY’S HINDQUARTERS. THERE WAS NO EXIT WOUND. IT WAS A HIGH-POWERED DEER RIFLE. IF AN ANIMAL IS HIT BY A CAR AND IT’S IN AGONIZING PAIN, AND SOMEBODY PUTS IT DOWN, THAT’S UNDERSTANDABLE BUT TYPICALLY WHEN YOU DO THAT YOU WOULD SHOOT IT IN THE HEAD. TROPICAL STORM FLORENCE SAYS SALLY’S COLLAR WAS DESTROYED AND HER BODY WAS SLASHED LIKE SOMEONE TRYING TO SKIN A DEER. MY FAMILY FEELS UNSAFE AND THEY HAVE BEEN THERE FOR NINE YEARS. RUSSELL WAS SCARED TO GO OUTSIDE. Reporter: RUSSELL IS HER GRANDSON. SHE SAYS HE AND SALLY WERE INSEPARABLE. SHE WAS THE GENTLEST, SHYEST DOG EVER. Reporter: ALL THE MORE REASON WHY SALLY’S DEATH HAS LEFT HER FAMILY CONFUSED AND DEMANDING A DEEPER INVESTIGATION. THIS IS BEYOND SOMEBODY JUST ACCIDENTALLY HITTING A DOG. AND LEAVING IT TO DIE. Reporter: IN POLK COUNTY,

  1. l have a problem with dog owners that let their dogs out unsupervised. Especially during hunting season. You had a beautiful, loving dog who is dead because you were irresponsible pet owners. l am sorry and very sad that this didn't have to happen. l would never let my dogs run without me because l love them and l would not want them to get hit by a car or shot or attacked by a wild animal. l am devastated this happened to your dog. l love animals and we should all watch over our pets. lf you were there this could have been prevented. What a senseless death.
