Two Accused of Shooting Dogs
TABOR, Iowa (AP) -- Two southwestern Iowa residents have been arrested, accused of shooting four dogs to death.
The Fremont County Sheriff's Office say 65-year-old Orrie Covert Jr. and 30-year-old Amber Sharp, both of Tabor, shot the dogs "execution-style."
Deputies responded to a rural Tabor property around 1 a.m. May 12 for a report that dogs that had been chasing livestock had been shot. But deputies say an investigation showed the dogs had not chased livestock. Each has died of a single gunshot.
Officials say a search warrant served Tuesday at the property turned up wild game and non-game animals -- some of them dead.
Both Covert and Tabor remained jailed Thursday and could not be reached for comment.
