PETALING JAYA: A man allegedly shot two arrows at a dog after it stood outside his gate and refused to leave on Tuesday night.

Allan Chong, a resident at Taman Sinaran in Taming Jaya said the dog was wearing a collar.

"By the time I got to the dog, my neighbour had already shot two arrows at it.

"One was lodged in its front leg and another in its back,'' said Chong.

The dog, wearing a collar, with two arrows lodged in its body.

He said the incident happened between 8.30 to 9.00pm, as he arrived home after an outing.

"I saw the man holding the bow and arrows and approaching the dog to shoot it again," alleged Chong.

He said the managed to move the dog away from the man's gate before calling the police.

The police advised him to lodge a report and tender the evidence to facilitate investigations.

Chong added he had not seen the dog in the area before and believed it was a lost dog trying to find its way home.

Meanwhile, MDDB project manager Melinda Joy Gomez condemned the man's action and said he could have used other methods to chase the dog away.

"He could have asked the help of neighbours who were dog owners or spray the poor animal with water instead of shooting it with arrows,'' said Gomez.
