Animal cruelty case in Oro Valley

Posted: Updated:

A case of animal cruelty has an oro valley community stunned and scratching it's head. Now a dog is fighting for it's life.

Windchester is a whippet, which resembles a smaller version of a greyhound. He's resting comfortably now. But a few days ago his life was in jeopardy.

Windchester was being watched at a house in this neighborhood in Oro Valley last week while his owner's were out of town. Everything was fine when the dog watchers left for dinner, but when they returned they found the dog unconscious and lying in the middle of the floor. He was bleeding to death after being shot with a pellet gun.
