WESTFIELD– The Westfield Police Department is investigating a case of animal cruelty after a dog was found suffering from two gunshot wounds.
On Jan. 30, officers were dispatched to the 16700 block of Eagletown Road after a caller reported a stray dog appeared to be in poor health. When the officers arrived to the scene, they found a white American bulldog wrapped in a blanket.
Authorities said the dog, who was later named Cupid, was not wearing a collar and was not micro chipped. Cupid was transported to the Hamilton County Humane Society, but shortly after, he was transferred to an animal hospital in Fishers for treatment.
It was determined the dog was shot twice with a small caliber handgun. Both of the bullets were successfully removed, and officials said Cupid is expected to make a full recovery.
If you have any information about the dog’s owner or any information regarding this crime, please contact Westfield police at 317-804-3200.
