— The investigation of a man accused of shooting his neighbor’s dog Sunday morning likely will be referred to the district attorney for review, authorities said.

The 9-year-old terrier mix dog was shot three times on the 7200-block of Kettle Moraine Drive Sunday morning. It died Sunday night, according to the dog’s owner.


Police believe a neighbor shot the dog with a .22-caliber rifle after the dog went into the neighbor’s yard. The owner suspects his dog might have been bothering the neighbor’s cats but says the dog was friendly and wouldn’t have hurt anything.


The Walworth County Sheriff’s Department is investigating and likely will refer the case to the district attorney’s office, Patrol Capt. Scott McClory said. Nobody has been arrested.
