WFMZ-TV reported  that Barbara Dieter of Kempton found her dog Lilly dead in the woods Sunday morning.

She says the dog didn't respond to calls Saturday evening, and later a neighbor telephoned to say hunters using his property reported killing a dog with an arrow.

Family members found the dog but didn't locate an arrow.

Dieter calls the Australian shepherd-pointer mix a very affectionate pet who played with everyone and didn't have a mean bone in her body.

They've reported the incident to the Game Commission, which tells the family an officer will review the matter.
