    RCMP in B.C. search for suspect after four-month-old puppy fatally shot

    QUADRA ISLAND, B.C. - A man who lives near Campbell River says his two children are distraught after finding their puppy shot to death after he ran to greet two men as they walked past the family's home.

    Nick Rose said Monday he was in his yard cutting firewood with his 12-year-old son Saturday morning when two men who had apparently been hunting went by.

    Rose said the four-month-old Jack Russell terrier ran toward the men as they walked down the road and he heard a shot as the hunters rounded the corner. The father and children ran to check on the dog and found him dying.

    He said his son and his 14-year-old daughter were extremely upset and that he had to restrain the boy from trying to attack one of the men.

    Rose said his young son was particularly distressed because he has just completed treatment for a brain tumour and the puppy was a replacement for another dog that had been put to sleep.

    Chris Rose, the boy's grandfather, said the family, in particular his grandson, is upset over the puppy's violent death.

    "Naturally, the whole family is just upset - tears and crying on the street. It was just awful," said the grandfather. "In particular my grandson, who, I should add, four years ago had brain surgery for cancer."

    The grandfather said he believed the puppy was hit with a single shotgun blast at close range.

    Quadra Island RCMP said charges of dangerous use of a firearm and endangering an animal are being considered.

    Cpl. Craig Peterson said RCMP have obtained witness statements and one of the two hunters is believed to have left Quadra Island and is believed to be living in the Victoria area.
