New Jersey man convicted of killing family's dog with arrow

A 39-year-old New Jersey man has been found guilty of animal cruelty for killing an Ulster County family's dog with a bow and arrow while he was deer hunting.

The Kingston Daily Freeman reports that David Moors of Beachwood, N.J., was found guilty Thursday in a non-jury trial of felony aggravated cruelty to animals. He faces a maximum sentence of up to two years in Ulster County Jail. Sentencing is Oct. 30.

County Judge Donald Williams called the killing "reprehensible" and without justification.

The shepherd-terrier mix named Clara was killed in October 2013.

Moors said he believed the dog was feral and he had a right to kill it.

Julie Palinkas, Clara's owner, said the dog was outside for less than nine minutes when she was killed.
