Winona County Sheriff Douglas was charged with shooting his neighbor's beagle with a pellet gun
On February 20 a beagle was let outside for 20 minutes to run around in rural Winona County. When it returned home it was short of breath, acting sick, and had a mysterious wound in its right side.
The owner called the Winona County Sheriff, but by the time a deputy arrived the beagle was already dead. Three days later, the dog owner's 46-year-old neighbor, a convicted cattle rustler named Dale Douglas, admitted to shooting the dog, according to charges filed Wednesday by the Winona County Attorney.More »
