Roswell police seek dog shooting suspect.

ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) – It is a disturbing case of animal cruelty in Roswell and it’s not the first time it’s happened. Police say someone shot a dog three times while it was playing in its own backyard.

The victim says when she went to check on her two dogs Monday morning, she found at least three pellets in one of their backs. The dog is recovering, but its owner says he’s in a lot of pain.

A few months ago, someone shot and killed another dog in Roswell.
