ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) - A reward for information about a dog shot with an arrow in southern Utah is increasing to $10,000.
The Humane Society of the United States says it is offering a reward of up to $5,000 in addition to the $5,000 already offered by the state chapter of the organization.
The group issued a statement Wednesday saying they hope the reward will lead to information about who shot a pit bull named Remy. The arrow nicked his intestines in two or three places before lodging in his stomach.
The dog was found by a Washington County sheriff’s deputy near the Arizona line Friday. He underwent surgery in St. George and is now recovering.
The dog is the third animal shot by an arrow or blow dart in the county this year.
