2 dogs shot, left to die in Connellsville



CONNELLSVILLE, Pa. - Two dogs were shot and left for dead on the side of the road in Connellsville.

One of the dogs didn’t make it, and the owner talked to reporter Pamela Osborne Wednesday night.

Jeremy Ginnelly is devastated that his dogs Cooper and Be'be were shot earlier this month. 

“Every once in a while they’ll run the neighborhood, very close to home.  You whistle and they come back,” Ginnelly said.

The owner said he got a call that Be'be was found dead along Reidmore Road.

“Everyone initially thought she was hit by a car,” Ginnelly said.

Cooper was found injured and hiding under pine trees.  Cooper’s front paw took the brunt of the blast and was amputated.

Ginnelly is offering a $2,000 reward for anyone who has information that leads police to the shooter.

Cooper is expected to make a full recovery.
