CASHMERE, Wash. (AP) — The owners of a small dog suspect an eagle or other large bird attempted to carry it away from their home near Cashmere.

Marcia Green says after she let her Shih Tzu named Truffle into the yard April 23 she heard loud barking and then silence.

The Wenatchee World reports Truffle was gone. Green began looking and found it about 300 feet from the house, barely conscious.

A veterinarian treated the dog for six puncture wounds, a punctured lung and broken ribs.

Green didn't see the bird she believes picked up her 7-pound dog and then dropped it. Green and her husband now accompany Truffle when it's outside.
