Dogs attacked with arrows in small Alaska town

Police in a small southeast Alaska town are investigating arrow attacks that killed one dog and wounded another in a neighborhood where three other dogs went missing last fall.

Haines police initially offered a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the shooter of the 30-inch arrows. The reward has since grown to almost $800 as outraged residents in the community of 1,800 donate their own funds.

Shannon Thompson, who owns the dogs with her boyfriend, says 9-year-old Foxy died in surgery after spending a night out missing. The boxer-dachshund mix came home the next day with the arrow still stuck in its back through chest.

Thompson’s 1-year-old lab and rat terrier mix, Maple, was struck in the head, but is on the mend.
