A Sioux family is mourning after someone shot and killed their family dog near Wall Lake on Friday evening (November 4).
The Briney family, who have lived in the Wall Lake area for years, are now completely shocked that someone would be so cruel as to shoot their beloved chocolate factory Lucy right on their property when the Brineys weren’t home to see their daughter visit this evening.
Dakota News Now reports that Lucy was playing with another dog outside near the family home when someone drove by her home in a pickup truck and fired a shot, killing the family dog.
The report said neighbors in the area reported hearing what sounded like a gunshot and hearing a dog howl right after. Footage from a nearby security camera caught a black four-door truck reversing, according to Dakota News Now. The whereabouts of that truck and the person who owns it are now of prime interest to authorities investigating the case.
Now looking for answers, the Briney family is offering a thousand dollar reward that will continue to increase thanks to donations from family members, friends and other concerned citizens who want to help them find the suspect responsible for Lucy’s murder .
As Jon Briney told Dakota News Now, “The person who did it needs to come in, they need to be held accountable, and they can’t do it again.”
If you have any information that may assist authorities in their search for the four-door black pickup truck involved in the incident, please contact the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Department.
And if you want to open your heart and make a donation to increase the size of the reward money, there are two easy ways. You can Venmo @LucyReward or you can donate in person at First Interstate Bank in Hartford.
