CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - One Region 8 family found their four dogs shot Monday night.

Craighead County sheriff deputies responded to an animal shot call on County Road 655 around 8 p.m., according to the initial incident report.

The dogs were taken to a veterinarian who told the owner it appeared the dogs were shot with some sort of air rifle.

The owner told deputies he did not hear any gunshots during the night.

Deputies searched the surrounding area of the home and spoke with neighbors but did not find anything that could have been used to harm the dogs.
