LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is accused of cruelty to animals after he allegedly shot and killed his neighbor's dog.

It happened on June 29, according to a criminal citation, on Tucker Station Road, near Shelbyville Road and Blankenbaker Parkway in Middletown.

Authorities say a woman's spayed rottweiler mix escaped from her yard, and ran into the yard of 66-year-old Bland H. Garrett III. Bland allegedly grabbed a rifle and shot the dog.

The dog's owner contacted Metro Animal Services and told them what happened. The dog was taken to Blue Pearl Animal Hospital, where it died from its injuries.

Investigators spoke with Garrett, and he allegedly admitted that he shot the dog and showed authorities the gun he used to do it.

Garrett was charged with first degree cruelty to animals, a felony charge. He was served with a criminal summons and is scheduled to face a judge on Aug. 21.
