No arrests yet, after dog shot on the weekend in Toronto

Tonka was shot while being walked on Cornwall Street, near Dundas and the DVP on Saturday evening...

Toronto Police are looking for a man who allegedly shot a dog over the weekend.

It happened on Cornwall Street in the area around Dundas and the Don Valley Parkway on Saturday evening just before 9:30.

Police say the woman walking her dog Tonka, an 11 month old American/English Bulldog cross, heard a loud bang, and shortly after, her dog started yelping.

Cops say there were several other people in the immediate area, and they started to run away.

A man, who police believe is a 'person of interest', was seen running away from the area, and the woman later noticed her dog had been shot.

The dog suffered serious injuries, and was taken to a veterinary hospital.

No humans were hurt.

Police are now looking for a black man with a thin build and long braided hair. He was last seen wearing dark clothing and a baseball hat.
