Feud between neighbors results in shooting death of family dog

An ongoing feud between neighbors in Somerville, Maine, has resulted in the death of a family’s dog. As reported by WGME News, an eight-year-old dog was shot and killed over the weekend and the shooter is facing criminal charges.

The dog’s owner, Lindsay Grady, told the news agency:

“It’s really awful. We had him for eight years and obviously I’m biased, but he was just the best dog ever, so loyal and sweet, and just nothing but a good boy.”

Grady explains that the dispute with Dannie Peaslee, the man who shot her dog, began years ago over property lines. Peaslee has claimed that he felt threatened by the dog, who allegedly came onto his property, but Grady disputes the claim and thinks that it has more to do with the ongoing feud.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office has charged Peaslee with animal cruelty – he is due in Wiscasset Unified Court in January.
