What would you do if your dog ate the food off your plate? Me and Devin Shane Calhoun, well sir, we’d shoot him. (Note to PETA, truly, I like dogs.) As for Mr. Calhoun, of Conifer Colorado, he definitely does not. As reported by UPI:
A Conifer, Colo., man faces up to 18 months in jail and a $5,000 fine after he pleaded guilty to shooting a dog for taking food from his plate.
A spokeswoman for the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office said Devin Shane Calhoun pleaded guilty to animal cruelty and prohibited use of a weapon, the Denver Post reported Tuesday.
Court documents quoted family members as saying Calhoun became enraged after the family dog, Lucky, took food from his plate while the man was outside. He then took the dog outside and shot him.
Lucky survived his gunshot wound. Calhoun is scheduled to be sentenced on March 12.
Lucky Lucky. I wonder how dog-shooters are treated in jail?
