Posted on 10/19/2020
On Thursday, October 15, 2020, at 6:41 p.m., Pleasant Prairie Police Department (PPPD) responded to a report in the 11000 block of 82nd Street that stated someone had shot two loose dogs.
Officers arrived on the scene and spoke to a resident searching for several of his dogs that had gotten loose. The dog owner had been approached by a witness who told him they saw someone shoot a dog at a nearby property. The location was shared with on-scene officers and it guided Police to a suspect, and two deceased dogs.
The suspect, a 63-year-old man, was interviewed by Police and indicated that loose dogs killed several chickens housed on the property. Police collected evidence at the scene and spoke with neighbors, who all cooperated with the investigation.
The information collected by PPPD led officers to arrest the suspect on two felony counts of Mistreatment of Animals. The suspect is being held at the Kenosha County Jail on those charges, along with probation violations and additional felonies.
The incident appears to be an isolated incident, and no continued threat to residents or their pets is known to exist at this time.
