Local Police Searching for Dog Killer
March 14, 2007 - Knightstown Police are searching for leads in a dog killing that took place February 28 in Raysville.
According to a report filed by Knightstown Police Office Chris Lane, a rottweiler owned by Knightstown resident Lori Muir was shot to death in the 6000 block of Church Street in Raysville at approximately 9 p.m. on Wednesday, February 28.
Muir told Lane that both of her rottweiler dogs had gotten loose about an hour before Lane responded to a call of dogs running loose in that area. When he arrived on Church Street, Lane said he saw a dog lying on the edge of the road, unable to move its back legs and struggling to breathe. Lane said he saw a small cut leaking drops of blood on the dog’s left hip.
According to Lane’s report, Muir then called for her other dog, which came when called and showed no aggression. Muir took the injured dog to Knightstown veterinarian Jim Wilson, who examined the dog and found two bullet wounds on the its hind quarters. By the size of the wounds, Wilson estimated the gun used to be at least .22 caliber.
Police are seeking tips, anonymous or otherwise, from anyone residing in that area, who might have heard gunshots or seen the assailant(s). Anyone with information about the shooting is encouraged to call the Knightstown Police Department at 345-2785.
