Amy Gill saw her dog Eddie wandering the rural road outside her family’s home and thought he must have gotten out again. As she got closer she notcied an arrow, about a metre long, sticking out of the 4 year-old dogs chest. When brought to the vet, the arrow had missed the heart by a few centimetres. “Whoever did it knew what they were doing”. The arrow costed Gills family $8,500, 6 hours of surgery for Gill and now is suffering damage to his liver, diaphragm and stomach along with reduced lung capacity. Gill hopes that an arrest will be made for this cruel act.
