Police Investigate Cookeville Dog Shooting
The dog is called a "Yorkypoo" and its name is Buster. The mixed breed poodle-Yorkshire terrier animal had been let out of his house on 17th Street last week to use the restroom. The owner told police she then heard a gunshot and says her dog began to yelp and ran back inside. Officer Jamey McCurry says an entry and exit wound made it clear that the dog had been shot with a firearm and not an air gun. The officer says that several people in the apartment complex heard the shot, but no one saw anything.
