Hope Solo says she is ‘crushed’ after her dog died of gunshot wounds
The pup, whom she shared with husband Jerramy Stevens, passed away from blood loss, she wrote, adding that “he fought up until the very end.”
“We’re crushed,” the World Cup champion wrote. “Just a dog running through the woods, trying to make his way home.”
Solo said that she and Stevens had bought their 60-acre property to give their dogs space to run.
“As animal lovers we are struggling to make sense of anyone using their right to own guns to shoot pets of any kind,” she wrote. “We have had pets come onto our property and always helped them get home safe.”
She described Conan as “kind and loving.”
“It’s hard news to share, but harder to make sense of this heinous act,” the post read.
