Caisen Green, the 18-year-old from Cherokee County, Okla., who shot and killed a pit bull with a bow and arrow, will not be charged.
Green shot the dog back on February 14, and then posted a photo on Facebook which stated:
"For all you pit lovers out there. Here's what happens when one shows up around my house,"
The teen managed to skirt animal cruelty charges by telling under-sheriff Jason Chennault, that he shot the dog with an arrow, in self-defense, after the dog supposedly snarled and charged at him.
A necropsy was never performed on the dog's body because Green burned the dog, explaining that the dog appeared to be "diseased."
