IPOH: A tailor is devastated after her pet dog was shot and later died after she took it out to look for a missing chicken in Tanjung Rambutan near here.

Chong Kwai Siew, 46, said the incident happened at about 1.30pm at Kampung Lintang, Batu 8, on Saturday (Jan 27).

Chong said she kept her seven dogs and a few chickens at the back of her shop.

“When one of my chickens went missing, I took my dog Xiao Ju out to look for it.

“When walking past a few houses about 100m from my shop, I suddenly heard a gunshot.

“My dog and I quickly ran away from the area. When I reached my shop, I realised that my dog had been shot, ” she said on Sunday (Feb 28).

Chong said she was in a panic and tried to call a veterinarian.

"Most of the clinics were closed, and no X-ray machines were available.

"However, I managed to find one clinic on the day of the incident, but without an X-ray, nothing much could be done except to give it some medication, " she said, adding that Xiao Ju died in her shop at about 5pm.

She said she only managed to get an X-ray done on Sunday, which revealed a bullet lodged in its body.

Chong said she lodged a police report at the Tanjung Rambutan police station.

She also said the state Veterinary Department was in the midst of conducting a post-mortem examination to determine the cause of death.

"I hope the person responsible will be caught as he could have hurt me in the process as well, " she added.

Ipoh OCPD Asst Comm A. Asmadi Abdul Aziz confirmed the case, and said investigations were being carried out.
