Valley Woman's Dog Shot in the Snout by Forest Service Officer

Shannon Liska says her pitbull Trax didn't deserve to be shot by a U.S. Forest Service officer while on a camping trip in March. 

Shannon Liska's 2-year-old pitbull still has a bullet shard in its snout. The dog is now toothless on one side of his mouth, and doesn't have enough jaw bone left on that side to fasten replacement teeth to.
