Deputies: Livingston County man shot and killed neighbor's dog, injured another dog

Created: 06/05/2014 10:22 AM WHEC.com

A 42-year-old Livingston County man has been arrested for felony cruelty to animals.

Sheriff’s deputies say Andrew Keiffer of West Sparta was arrested after a six-month investigation into the shooting death of another person’s dog. Investigators say Keiffer shot his neighbor’s two dogs, killing one and seriously injuring the other.

Deputies say Keiffer’s arrest was handled with caution due to threatening statements Keiffer made to a state trooper during an arrest last week.

Keiffer is being held in the Livingston County Jail in lieu of bail.
