What kind of sick piece of crap would do something like this? That is the question a Saginaw County woman is asking after she found her dog shot to death behind her home.

Kellie Harrell let her 2-year-old Yorkie mix out one morning like she routinely does. While the dog was out, Harrell heard gunshots but her dog didn't run back to the house as she expected him too. She went out to look for him and what she found was devastating. The dog had multiple shots including one in the leg, two in the stomach, one in the chest and one in the ear.

According to WNEM, the area behind her home is sometimes used for target practice but she doesn't think this was an accident.

I can't imagine walking outside and finding my dog shot dead. Absolutely heartbreaking, I feel so bad for this poor woman.
