For the second time in less than two weeks, a Siberian husky was being treated at an animal hospital in Victorville for gunshot wounds, officials at Ark Animal Hospital said Wednesday.

The latest victim, being called "Angel," was discovered wandering around a neighborhood in Perris last Wednesday by an officer with Riverside County Animal Services.

The 3-year-old dog had been shot in the neck, knee cap and legs, according to Dr. Leanne Bell with Ark Animal Hospital, who said the wounds looked like the result of someone using the animal for "target practice."

On July 31, another Siberian husky nicknamed "Stella" was brought to the animal hospital after being wounded by a shotgun blast that left hundreds of BB pellets and other pieces of shrapnel embedded in her skin.
