Arrest in Dog Shooting Case

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.
