Portage man sentenced to jail in dog killing

PORTAGE (WKOW) — The Portage man convicted of killing a puppy will spend at least six months in jail.

A Columbia County judge sentenced Brandon Shearer on Friday.

Authorities say Shearer used a hammer to kill the dog in March. They say Shearer was upset with the animal for urinating and defecating in the house.

He pleaded no contest to animal mistreatment in May.
