A local man has admitted shooting a dog with a 20-gauge shotgun, saying he was trying to scare it because it had killed some chickens.

Sumner County deputies charged 54-year-old Montie Pack, 107 Wilson Road, with reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon and aggravated cruelty to an animal. The dog suffered a gunshot wound to the left rear leg.

Police report that the mixed-breed dog was with an 11-year-old riding horseback on Wilson Road.

After Pack allegedly shot at the dog, the girl reported that she, the horse and the dog returned home.

Deputy Chad Warner and Sergeant Tony Schiavone investigated the incident.

Pack posted a $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Sumner County General Sessions Court on Nov. 4.
