Vets say a dog which was shot in Carlisle is lucky to be alive.
The Border Patterdale Terrier cross, named Sam, was targeted with an air rifle and suffered a punctured lung and internal bleeding.
The incident happened in the Sanderson Close area of the city between 7am and 7.30am yesterday, 9 August 2017.
Sam's owner, Emma Edgar, says the family have been left distraught and are asking anyone with information to contact the police:
Sam's vet, Charlotte Denston, says he's out of danger in the short term but it is too soon to know if there will be long-term complications.
He's been incredibly lucky because during the path the bullet has managed to miss his heart, quite a few major blood vessels and we think has succeeded in missing his food pipe so he's incredibly lucky to be alive.
Anyone with any information should email email@example.com or call 101.
