Dog shot in Verde Village

VERDE VILLAGE -- A man walking along Ogden Ranch Road and Old Hwy 279 came across a male pitbull mix weighing about 60 pounds.

The dog had been badly injured and the man took the dog to the Verde Veterinary Hospital. It was determined that the white pitbull had been shot repeatedly with a 22-caliber weapon.

Dr. Huntsberger called the Cottonwood Police to report the incident. The police are now investigating the shooting.

Huntsberger described the dog as having "no pull harness" on it that buckles between the animals legs.

There was no tag or identification with the animal. The animal is thought to be a neutered white 2- to 4-year-old pit bull with random small black spots on it.

The dog did not survive the night.

Cottonwood Police are investigating the shooting.
