According to WCCO News, Bloomington police are asking for the public's help in identifying and apprehending a pair of individuals that left a dog by a road in the area of 106th St & Morgan Avenue, in Bloomington.

This poor pup suffered substantial injuries inflicted by this pair of individuals. The pair the police are searching for shot the dog with a BB or pellet gun several times and backed over the dog with the SUV as they left the scene. Police said in a statement that the dog was found with "obvious injuries" to it's face and body

The dog was taken to a local veterinary clinic where they removed several BB's and performed eye removal surgery. The dog is now resting comfortably at the clinic.
