Dog killed after being struck by arrow

ERIE, Pa. -- A dog was killed Wednesday afternoon after it was struck by an arrow on the city's east side.

Around 1:30 p.m., Michael Davis, the dog's owner, said he was working in his backyard when his 1-year-old UKC Bully Dog, Twist, escaped. Davis said he walked around his house to the back alley in the 900 block of East Ninth Street. That's where Davis found Twist dead with a trail of blood behind him in the street.

Davis said he did not hear anything. He said there was no barking, no yelling and he did not see anyone in the area.

Davis believes that someone shot the arrow from a window.

"My kids don't know yet,” Davis said. “My wife is devastated. She can barely see straight. She's shaken all over. We were all right there working in the garage."

Davis said Twist never posed a threat to people in the neighborhood. Davis added that Twist's bark was louder than his bite.
