Louisiana man charged with animal cruelty for shooting dog's paramour

Randall Schexnayder, 51, of Metairie, faces aggravated animal cruelty charges after he allegedly shot his neighbor's dog for mating with his purebred dog last week reports fox8live.com.

Raider, a four-year-old Labrador retriever mix, accidentally escaped from his yard last week and hightailed it over to Schexnayder's dog who was in heat; there the two dogs obviously didn't care about their genetic differences. (The breed of the purebred has not been identified.)

When Raider returned home, his owners saw blood and thought their dog had been hit by a car, but at the veterinarian hospital, the report came back that Raider had been shot twice; once in the muzzle and once in the left side of his neck.

Jim Hanley, Raider's owner immediately thought of Schexnayder, who had warned Hanley in the past to keep his dog away.

Authorities state Schexnayder admitted to shooting Raider with a .22 caliber pistol. Raider is expected to recover.

Of course, not taking sides on this story, but doesn't it make sense for all responsible dog owners to spay and neuter your dogs to avoid the birth of more puppies and in this case - shooting a dog?
