Dog Shot with Arrow

Dr. John Lewis called Charlotte Williamson on Nov. 13 and told her that Alice, her dog, had been shot with an arrow, tipped with a three-bladed broad head. About six inches of it was buried in Alice’s face; the rest of the arrow must have broken off when it slammed into her and she fell.

Looking at the arrow and its razor-sharp blades, the doctors knew they could not pull the arrow out the way it had come in. So they made an incision on the right side of Alice’s neck to pull the arrow through, Lewis said.

The operation took about four hours, he said.

State Game Commission Wildlife Conservation Officer Amy Nabozny said she wasn’t aware of the shooting until she saw an Associated Press story several weeks ago.

“We would look into it. . . . Just to see if it’s anything we can help with.”
