Pit bull wounded in drive by shooting

A dog owner whose pet was hit by a bullet in what appears to be a drive-by shooting explained Tuesday why she's not planning on taking the case to police.

"They can't even find who's shooting people never mind who's shooting dogs," the woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, reasoned. "It's just more stress on me."

The incident took place at around midnight Monday near Keele and Sheppard.

"I was just walking him and I heard a loud noise," the dog lover adds. "He yelps a little bit and I see little drops of blood."

Luckily the dog survived after the bullet narrowly missed all its vital organs.

"It basically missed his chest and his heart, and it entered here and it is sitting before his chest cavity," explains veterinarian Allison Turcotte.

The Humane Society is now investigating the case, although they admit finding the person responsible is unlikely. They'll remove the bullet during surgery on Wednesday.
