ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque man is facing charges after authorities say he shot and killed a neighbor’s pet Chihuahua for barking too much.
KOAT-TV reports (http://bit.ly/YLqIuJ) that Jack River is accused of shooting the Chihuahua with a BB gun. Authorities say officers confiscated semi-automatic BB guns from River’s home, and now he’s facing felony charges.
River had filed a number of complaints against the Chihuahua in the past, claiming the dog barked too much.
River denied that he killed the animal.
It was unclear if he had an attorney.
