Angry resident with hunting bow shoots trespassing dog in Valencia

FOLLOWING a complaint in the Valencian town of Alcalà de Xivert, officers of the Guardia Civil arrested a man for shooting a dog with a bow and arrow.

The animal had been discovered by its owner collapsed in a pool of blood outside his house and the animal was rushed to a vet where an x-ray revealed an arrow head lodged within its body and so severe was the injury that it had to be operated on.

When officers called at a nearby farm, they discovered that the 38-year-old resident had caught the dog trespassing on his property and therefore shot it using a hunting bow.

He was arrested and will be charged with cruelty and mistreatment of a domestic animal.

The injured dog is now making a good recovery.
