Conklin Man Indicted for Shooting Sister's Dog

By Jason Weinstein.
A Conklin man has been indicted for shooting his sister's dog. A Broome County grand jury indicted 19-year-old Kobe Hanns on charges of Aggravated Cruelty to Animals and Criminal Mischief in the third degree. Both charges are felonies.

At about 11:30 on January 2nd State Police responded to a 911 report of a dog being shot outside a home on Still Water Road in the Town of Conklin.

Police say an investigation determined that Hanns had been in a dispute with his sister because her four year old pit bull had just urinated inside their home. Police say that after threatening to kill her pet, Hanns took the dog outside and shot and killed it with his shotgun.
