MAGALLOWAY, Maine A Dixfield hunter is facing charges for allegedly shooting a dog that was walking in the woods with its owner.

The Maine Warden Service says Christopher Salatino was charged Monday with shooting a domestic animal. He was issued a summons to court.

Authorities say the German shepherd was shot Nov. 2 in the woods of Magalloway.

Salatino, who was deer hunting, told authorities he thought the dog was a coyote.

A spokeswoman for the Warden Service says the shooting was a case of hunter not practicing 100 percent identification.

On the same day, an Orrington man was charged with shooting a dog he mistook for a coyote.
