Police are asking for help amid concerns that someone may have shot at a dog on purpose in Blewett.

The incident took place on November 22 at about 3:30 p.m. at the 3500 block of Blewett Road.

The dog’s owner heard a gunshot and when their dog returned home from that direction it had a wound on its back leg.

After taking the dog to the vet for treatment, it was determined the injury was from a .22 caliber firearm.

To date, RCMP have no further leads or information forthcoming and concern has them asking for the public’s help. This kind of activity is not condoned, says Cst. Bill Long of the Nelson RCMP.

Police are concerned that someone may have been shooting at the dog for no reason,” said Long. “Our concern is that someone was out and just randomly shooting.”

This is an isolated incident.
