UPDATE: Puppy owner: No idea why Jack shot

Posted: Updated:

The owner of a six-month-old puppy that was shot in the head as it was tied up on a leash in the middle of the day says she has no idea why the dog was targeted.

"I don't know how it happened. I just heard him yelping," Stacey Bell said Wednesday.

Bell said she had tied up the Jack Russell terrier/border collie mix puppy named Jack outside her home about 1 p.m. Tuesday while she took a bath when the shooting occurred in the 600 block of Humboldt Avenue.

"That is what scares me, for it to happen in the middle of the day," the 32-year-old Bell said.

Bell said the dog was shot in the forehead with a single pellet and had to be euthanized because of the damage to the brain.

Bell said she has a pet rabbit and it was outside in a cage near the dog but was not hurt.

Police say there are no suspects in the shooting.

If you have any information you are asked to call the Wausau Police Department at (715) 261-7800.
