Man charged with killing family dog after bite to 4-year-old

Tuesday, March 3, 2015


ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Police say a 33-year-old man killed the family dog after it bit a 4-year-old boy.

Foster's Daily Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/1KeDnBt ) the boy was playing with the dog in a Rochester apartment around 6 p.m. Monday when he was bitten on top of the head.

Police say Lee Thurston, the dog's owner, put the animal in a kennel and shot it with a hunting rifle.

First responders examined the boy; he was not hospitalized.

Thurston was charged with felony counts of reckless conduct and cruelty to animals, and unauthorized use of a firearm, a violation.

A phone number listed in his name was out of service Tuesday. He was released on $5,000 bail and is scheduled to return to court April 20. It could not immediately be learned if he had a lawyer.

I never gave any thought to how I'd kill a dog of mine if I owned one and decided it needed to be killed.  When a cat of mine had to be put away, it didn't cost much to have a vet do it, but I never even thought about the legality of a do-it-yourself pet animal euthanasia.
