A 62 year old St. Lawrence County man faces an animal cruelty charge for allegedly killing his neighbor's dog.
Sheriff's deputies arrested Fredrick Whitmarsh Jr. of 8 West Road in the town of Russell on Tuesday.
Officials said Whitmarsh had an ongoing dispute with his neighbor.
On June 18, Whitmarsh allegedly used a long gun to shoot the neighbor's dog because the animal had wandered onto his property and gotten into his garbage.
Whitmarsh was charged with animal cruelty and was ordered to appear in Russell Town Court at a later date.
