Man shot German shepherd twice ‘to shut him up now’

In Spalding County, Georgia, a man drove to a neighbor’s home and shot at a German shepherd three times – hitting the dog twice and saying “maybe that will shut him up now.” The two homes are within a third of a mile from each other.

According to AJCNews, Allen Cossitt Glover, 41, drove to a home on Line Creek Road on May 9 and shot the dog through a fence. After fleeing in a white pickup truck, the suspect told authorities he hoped the incident would quiet the dog down. The dog, whose name is Lazer, suffered injuries to his mouth and rib cage.

Glover said he had complained numerous times about the dog’s barking but nothing had been done and now it was “starting to mess with his head.”

The 73-year-old owner of Lazer rushed his dog to a veterinary hospital where surgery was performed. Fragments from two 9mm bullets still remain in the dog who may need additional surgery. A GoFundMe page has been set up and Lazer has a long path to recovery.

Glover has been charged with felony animal cruelty, trespassing and reckless conduct. Bail was set at $11,000.
