Exclusive: Award-Winning Show Dog Shot to Death
"You can still see some of the blood in here. She was laying in here and she was stretched out and she was dead," explains Keith Scott.
Scott came home Friday to discover Georgia, one of his prize winning show dogs for years, had been shot.
"I pulled her out checked her for any signs of life. She was still slightly warm but you could tell the body was starting to cool off. I immediately called the police and went to contact my neighbors to find out who heard if anything and no one seems to know anything at all."
A rifle bullet pierced the 7-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier through the eye and out the lower jaw.
It appears to be a malicious act that Scott can’t quite wrap his mind around.
“I couldn’t believe how someone would viciously shoot that dog for no reason. I mean cold blooded with a shot right through the eyeball," he says.
“Can you imagine why anyone would want to come in here and do something like that?” I ask.
“I have no idea. I don’t know if it’s the breed or whether its kids being stupid. I don't know,” Responds Scott's girlfriend, Christina Brown.
Georgia competed in dog shows as far as Canada and even made appearances on TV shows.
Christina says "We picked her out as a baby. She was our heart. Wherever we went she went."
The death of Georgia leaves another Pit Bull named ‘TKO’ without a mother and Keith Scott without a friend.
"I'm at a loss this is like a member of my family. I need to know who did this. Who did this to my dog. I need justice for her," says Scott.
The Monroe Co. Sheriff’s office says there is not much they can do without some sort of evidence like a bullet or shell casing which they had no luck finding near the crime scene.
