LYMAN — On Thursday evening, Aug. 6, the Giles family dog, Milly, got loose. When Aaron Giles realized she was missing, he searched for Milly and found her about 20-30 minutes later behind the house and a group of teenagers were lingering by the town pavilion in Lyman.
Giles shouted at the teens and asked them what they were doing. They ran off. When Giles got the family’s dog home, the family realized something was wrong with the dog. She had blood near her jaw and whimpered in pain.
The Giles took the dog to the vet on Friday, Aug. 7, where the veterinary took X-rays and discovered an arrow had been shoved down the dog’s throat.
Giles said they have had the dog for four and a half months, “but love he so much and are so sad that she had to experience such senseless brutality by this group of teenagers.”
They filed a police report in hopes of catching who was responsible for this violent act against a defenseless little puppy.” They are also asking everyone to share their story, and for help in finding who was responsible for the attack on their dog.
Owner Jamie Jones Giles asks anyone with information to contact her via Facebook, call 307-371-5488 or to call the Lyman Police. She also asked for vigilance to keep this from happening to other family pets in the community.
