Dog slain with crossbow on Youngstown's North Side

Published: Mon, April 21, 2014 @ 5:57 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — The owners of Dorian Books and Full Circle Florist at Madison Avenue and Elm Street are devastated over the fatal shooting of their 8-year-old purebred male golden retriever, Teddie, with a crossbow late Sunday.

“I heard a loud snap and then a yelp,” said Rodd Coonce, bookstore and flower shop co-owner. Coonce added his dog was shot at 6 p.m. in the parking lot of an apartment house next to his nearby Madison Avenue residence on the city’s North Side.

The arrow went through the dog’s side and was found on the ground, Coonce said.

Nobody has been charged in the case.

“If someone has that little regard for even the life of an animal, I would be afraid they would have little regard for human life,” Coonce said, adding that he has no idea what the shooter’s motive might have been.
