Police seek person who shot dog with arrow

WOOSTER, Ohio (AP) — Ohio police are searching for the person who shot a yellow Labrador retriever with an arrow.

Wayne County resident Chatfield Redick says a neighbor found his 9-year-old dog Cosmo with an arrow in his chest Wednesday afternoon near Wooster, 60 miles south of Cleveland. Redick says Cosmo had gotten out of their yard after their invisible fence malfunctioned.

The Redicks say they had to take Cosmo to an animal clinic in Copley for an emergency surgery to remove the arrow. Redick says the veterinarian found the arrow missed Cosmo’s heart and lungs by millimeters.

Cosmo is now back at home and is expected to make a full recovery.

The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information to call.
