Samson, the Husky-wolf mix who was nearly killed by a hunter’s arrow this month, is recuperating well at home – and has an ally in finding who shot him in the face.
An international animal protection organization, In Defense of Animals, has offered a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who attacked the Raymond, Washington, dog near the family home.
The pet of Laura Bowerman, Samson was romping on the family’s 30-acre property that fronts the Willapa River when an arrow struck in in the left eye, lodging in his skull on Sept. 7. After Samson was struck, the archer broke the arrow’s shaft off, leaving much of it in the dog’s head, and left the scene.
