A pellet was removed from another dog in the Cedaredge area the same afternoon. The dog was whining and had blood coming from a rear leg. The owner took the dog to the vet, who removed the pellet. It had caused no serious damage. The Cedaredge resident said the incident probably occurred around 7 a.m. when she let her dog out. The case is under investigation.
