MARION COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A Marion County Sheriff’s Office K-9 faces a long road to recovery after deputies said he was shot.
K-9 Kilo will undergo reconstructive surgery on his left back leg Thursday afternoon at North Carolina State Veterinary Hospital, according to a Marion County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit Facebook post.
Meanwhile, the investigation continues into who shot K-9 Kilo.
On Tuesday night, K-9 Kilo escaped his enclosure to sniff around a farm and then found himself the victim of a “senseless shooting,” according to the MCSO.
A $1,750 reward is now being offered for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible. A concerned citizen pledged $1,000 toward the total reward and the Golden Leaf Antique Mall in Mullins donated an extra $250.
Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
