Sheep Killer Going to Jail

February 11, 2006 -- A 23-year-old Sabillasville man received six years in prison Friday for the shootings of two sheep July 8 as they grazed in a field along Apples Church Road in Thurmont.

One of the sheep died immediately. A veterinarian euthanized the second animal, which suffered a severe injury. Frederick County Circuit Court Judge G. Edward Dwyer Jr. suspended all but 18 months of the sentence for the felony animal cruelty charges.

I am glad that this case got quite a bit of public attention and that the person responsible for the shooting is going to jail. People who commit such senseless acts as this need to be held accountable. Thankfully, this guy will spend some time in jail thinking about the pain he has caused.
