ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Anchorage police say a dog was shot seven times and left to die on the west side of the city.

Police say the 7-month-old female pit bull was found at around 8 a.m. Saturday near Jewel Lake Road and International Airport Road east of Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.

A good Samaritan took the dog to an animal hospital, which called animal control.

Police spokeswoman Anita Shell tells KTUU-TV (https://bit.ly/1ybPFll) the dog’s front leg was shattered. It underwent surgery and is reported as stable.

Shell says the dog was not wearing a collar and did not have an identifying microchip.

Shell says the dog was friendly and well-fed and likely was a pet. The owner has not been found.

Police have opened a felony animal cruelty investigation.
