MORGAN CITY, La. (AP) - A 31-year-old man has been arrested in
Berwick after he fatally shot two dogs after one bit him.
Chad Barras, of Stephensville, was arrested Monday and charged
with discharging a firearm in the city limits, resisting a police
officer, illegal possession of a pit bull and two counts of
aggravated cruelty to animals.
The Daily Review reports that Berwick police, responding to a
complaint of gunshots, found a golden retriever and a pit bull dead
on the Barras parents' porch.
Police Chief James Richard says Barras owned the pit bull, and
his father owned the golden retriever. Barras remained in the City
Jail Tuesday morning pending a bond hearing.
