    A family in central Pennsylvania is asking state game officials to investigate the death of their 10-month-old puppy, suspected to have been shot by a bow hunter.

    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.
