Dog shot in argument

Police say a man has been charged after a dog was shot in the paw with a BB gun in Burnaby, following an argument with the dog's owner.

Metro Vancouver Transit Police say the two men, who know each other because they panhandle together, began arguing Tuesday morning near the Metrotown SkyTrain Station over the sale of a cellphone.

They say as the argument escalated, one of the men allegedly pulled a pistol style BB gun from his jacket and threatened to shoot the dog if he didn't get the phone.

Police say the dog was shot once, causing a front paw to bleed.

Police say the dog suffered minor injuries and is expected to make a full recovery.

A 28-year-old man has been charged with injuring a dog, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose and carrying a concealed weapon.
