Caswell County said two men have been charged after a weeks-long
investigation into the reported shooting of hunting dogs.
Joseph Brewster King, 75, of Reidsville and Joseph Lee King, 51, of
Greensboro have been charged with felonious cruelty to animals.
Reports were filed with the Caswell County Sheriff's Office in
"The Caswell County Sheriff's Office responded to
a call of hunting dogs being shot in the area of 4840 Solomon Lea
Road," officials said in a news release. "After completion of the
investigation, Caswell County Sheriff's Office Investigators met
with the District Attorney's Office where the case was reviewed and
sent before the Grand Jury."
Indictments were handed up this
week. Both men are scheduled to appear in Caswell County Superior
Court next month.
