KREMLING – The 14th Judicial District Attorney will not be filing charges in the shooting death of a puppy in Kremling.

It was mid-December when the four-month-old Huskey got out of his fence and on to a neighboring ranch in Kremling.

The Summit Daily reports that the dog was chasing and biting at cattle before the neighbor fired two shots, killing the dog.

The DA cited Title 35 in the decision, which says it’s ok for a dog to be killed if it is running, worrying, or injuring livestock.

The dog’s owner also avoided charges for having a dog running at large.
