KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) – A doe that got national attention after she made friends with a stray dog and the two hung out in a cemetery has been shot and killed.

Security staff at the cemetery found her Sunday evening just feet from the cemetery’s chapel. She survived an attack earlier this year. Cemetery officials said they are heartbroken at the cruel and senseless crime.

“She had been shot once through the right shoulder. You can’t try to make sense out of it,” said Bruce Mathews, a cemetery board of trustees member. “Someone with a hard heart and a confused mind. I’m being kind when I say that. She meant something different to everybody who came down here. … The rational mind can’t make sense of anything like this. Who would do it?”
