PETALING JAYA - The man who shot two arrows at a dog in Taman Sinaran, Taming Jaya was questioned at his house by police Wednesday evening.
According to a police officer from the Kajang district police headquarters, who declined to be named, they had received instructions from the Selangor police headquarters to investigate the matter.
The officer also declined to reveal if the man was being investigated for possessing and using the bow and arrow as opposed to animal abuse.
"We cannot reveal anything at the moment because the case is under investigation,'' said the police officer.
The man had shot and wounded the dog, which had stood at his gate and refused to move and one arrow lodged hit the front leg whilst another hit the back.
Animal lovers rushed the dog to a veterinary clinic where it received first aid before handing over the Rottweiler to canine welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB).
MDDB project manager Melinda Joy Gomez said the dog has been estimated to be about 12 years old and was also partially blind.
"She appears to be a lost dog and must have been trying to find her way home and gone to the shooter's house after hearing voices coming from that direction,'' said Gomez.
