A man shot and killed a dog at the Hooksett Rest stop on I-93 Wednesday afternoon, according to New Hampshire State Police. Officers say a large dog jumped out of the window of a parked car when it saw a smaller dog walking by.
Witnesses tell police a man tried to free his smaller dog from the mouth of the larger dog, but was unsuccessful. He allegedly fired a single gun shot at the larger dog. State troopers say that dog was killed and the smaller dog was taken to a veterinarian for treatment, but did not appear to have life threatening injuries.
State Police Troop D is investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call TR. Mark Barrett at 603-271-3636.
