Dog found shot, left for dead was euthanized

 A dog found shot and left for dead in a field in East St. Louis on Wednesday was euthanized Thursday afternoon by St. Clair County Animal Control.

According to witnesses, the black-and-white pit bull mix named Domino was shot by an East St. Louis police officer Tuesday while responding to a call for an eight-year-old boy that had been bitten by the dog.

The boy reportedly had been pelting the dog with rocks.

Domino was rushed to a St. Louis animal hospital by Gateway Pet Guardians, who by law had to turn the dog over to St. Clair County Animal Control, which has jurisdiction in bite cases.
