Georgia Man Held On Bond After Shooting Dog In The Face

COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) — Police say a Georgia man is being held without bond after officers found a pit bulldog with a gunshot wound to the face in Columbus.

Authorities say 22-year-old Anthony Rogers of Columbus is charged with animal cruelty. Another man was given a court summons on similar charges but wasn’t arrested.

Police Sgt. Art Sheldon tells the Ledger-Enquirer that officers received a report of gunshots early Monday and went to a home shared by Rogers and the other man.

Officers found three dogs in a cage without food, water or shelter.

According to the Ledger-Enquirer one of the officers stated one dog had a head wound which was from a Mossberg shotgun.

Aside from animal cruelty, Rogers is charged with a gun violation. He remains in jail.

Sheldon says officers seized all three dogs.
