YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A pit bull which humane agents found Monday with an arrow stuck in its face is now out of surgery and recovering in the care of an animal rescue group.
It took about an hour Monday morning to catch the dog on Youngstown’s east side.
The animal had an arrow lodged in its cheek, just below its right eye.
The pit bull was running around the streets off McGuffey Road, with humane agents trying to catch it.
They eventually did, and even though the dog’s injuries look bad, the animal is expected to make a full recovery.
“He is very happy. He is eating and drinking. He has a drain in his face where the surgery was performed and where the arrow was to make sure that no infections set up there,” said Rick Tunison, Mahoning County Dog Warden’s Office.
Deputy dog wardens are still looking for information as to who shot the dog. Anyone who may have seen something is asked to call them at the dog pound at 330-740-2205.
