Dog Shot in Head by NYPD Still Alive

Here's a miraculous (but still not exactly uplifting, quite yet) update to yesterday's story of a dog who was shot in the head by police. As the Daily News reported last night, the dog, whose name is Star, is alive and was transported to an animal-care facility in East Harlem. A spokesman for Animal Care & Control of NYC confirms to us via e-mail that the dog "is being provided medical care by Animal Care & Control of NYC and is in stable condition at this time."
