Dog Shot Randomly Outside Pine City Home
A quiet evening on Monday in Pine City turned tragic when an unknown shooter killed a resident’s dog.
Around 7:30 Monday evening Pine City resident Yvonne Alleman and her family were relaxing when a gunshot was heard followed by a whimper from their black lab/Australian Shepherd mix named Lucy.
Alleman said losing the dog was devastating, but could have been even worse.
She added that if the culprit is found, the Pine County Sheriff’s Department would be pressing charges.
A reward has been set out for information that would lead to finding the suspect. If you have any knowledge surrounding it, call the Sheriff’s Office at 320-629-8380
