Man who shot dog with arrow sentenced to jail time


KINGSTON – A Beachwood, New Jersey man was sentenced in Ulster County Court on Thursday to six months in jail and five years of probation for shooting a 2 ½ year old dog in the back with an arrow, killing the animal.
David Moors, 40, was also sentenced to perform 250 hours of community service, surrender his hunting license and weapons, and pay over $2,300 in restitution to the dog’s family.
It was on October 27, 2013 that Moors was hunting on his sister’s property in Walker Valley when he shot the dog, named Clara.
He was convicted after a bench trial of aggravated cruelty to animals.
At sentencing, Moors’ attorney suggested his client perform community service at an animal shelter, prompting County Court Judge Donald Williams to say he could not imagine what animal shelter would want Moors to serve as a volunteer.
