Neighbours across the street, on the edge of the village with lots more space behind them, WERE shooting at it. It showed up back home one day with an injury so I think someone did hit it. Had no effect on the owner who continued to let it run loose. A 120 lb. dog.
How horrible! The poor dog , getting shot sure would have effect on it. What an irresponsible dog owner , it's too bad someone could not take the dog away from the person before it get killed.
