A Pennsylvania man has been charged for the fatal shooting of a family’s German shepherd. As reported by WTAE News, the three-year-old shepherd, Otto, was fatally shot in February after escaping from his family’s Washington Township home.
After Otto got loose, members of the Zuro family spent hours trying to find him. The next morning Otto’s lifeless body was found in their neighbor’s field. A necropsy confirmed that the shepherd had been shot to death. The authorities found a blood trail leading from the Zuro family’s property to Michael Zadrozny’s property; that man is now facing a felony aggravated animal cruelty charge.
The Zuro family is hoping for justice for their dog – in the meantime, they have been left shaken by the violence. Holly Zuro tells the news agency, “I’m scared. I check the doors and windows several times at night.”
