Dog is shot in farm cash raid.
The offenders, both wearing balaclavas, escaped with pounds 3,000 cash after assaulting the owner of the farm on the Staffordshire moorlands and blasting his collie in the head with a shotgun.
The 43-year-old owner of the farm and a man, 44, visiting the property in Quarnford were tied up and assaulted.
The victims managed to free themselves and raise the alarm after the raid at 7.30 last night.
A police spokesman said: "The offenders discharged the shotgun at the collie dog. The dog has serious head injuries."
