A resident walking their dog near the east end of Summit Rd. early in the morning on July 29 came across a dead fox that had a large gunshot wound.
Besides being upset over the killing of an animal, residents were concerned about a gun possibly being fired in a residential area. No one reported hearing shots, however.
Kohler Police Chief Shawn Splivalo said a Kohler police officer canvassed the area where the fox was found but no witnesses were located. If a suspect is identified, the police will pursue a violation of a Village ordinance that prohibits discharging a weapon in the Village of Kohler.
Splivalo said the type of gun used hasn’t been determined.
