Dog shot after escaping from St. Louis yard : Lifestyles

Someone shot a dog in the Carondelet neighborhood after it escaped from its yard Tuesday morning, police said.

The dog, a pit bull-pointer mix named Loki, had to be euthanized because of its injuries.

Police said they got a call about an injured dog near the intersection of Eiler Street and Virginia Avenue about 9:45 a.m.

The owner of the dog said it had gotten out of the yard. Neighbors heard gunshots and the dog was found suffering from a gunshot wound to the shoulder. Police said they couldn’t find anyone who saw the shooting.

The Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Task Force also responded and the owner turned the dog over to the Humane Society because it was so seriously injured.

According to a Humane Society spokesperson, Loki was taken to the headquarters on Macklind Avenue and was immediately seen by a staff veterinarian. He had grave injuries and extensive blood loss. Staff made the decision to euthanize Loki.

Police are investigating.
