ELK RIDGE, Utah, Sept. 12, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A dog owner in Elk Ridge left home Tuesday with her dog, Lucy, secured in the backyard, and returned later to find Lucy badly injured with a stab-type wound.

The dog had been left in the home’s backyard.

“Lucy was treated by a local veterinarian who told the owner it appeared someone had either stabbed Lucy or shot her using a bow and arrow,” a statement from the Utah County Sheriff’s Office says.

The dog required nearly a dozen stitches. A photo of the stitches appears below.

“Fortunately, it appears that Lucy will make a full recovery at home,” the UCSO statement says. “Unfortunately, we don’t know who is responsible for Lucy’s injuries.”

The injury is believed to have been inflicted on Tuesday afternoon.

“The Utah County Sheriff’s Office asks anyone who might know something about who is responsible for this crime to call Central Utah 911 at 801-794-3970 and ask to speak to a deputy.”

The case number is 19UC09615.
