New York man sentenced to 1 year for hanging dog from tree

March 05, 2019 - 3:30 AM

MAYVILLE, N.Y. - A New York man has been sentenced to a year in jail for killing a dog found hanging from a tree.

Robert Overton Jr. was sentenced Monday in Chautauqua County Court, where he pleaded guilty earlier to aggravated animal cruelty.

Overton told police he killed the pit bull last year after it behaved aggressively to his young daughter.

Prosecutors say Overton will become the first offender to be placed on the western New York county's Animal Abuser Registry.
