Charges have been filed against a Chester County sheep-owner who shot and killed two dogs belonging to a neighbor after he found them on his property Feb. 12.

Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan said today that Gabriel Pilotti, 72, was charged with cruelty to animals and recklessly endangering another person.

Initially, Pilotti told police that the animals, Bernese mountain dogs, were threatening his sheep in their pen. If that had been the case, his actions would be permitted under Pennsylvania's dog law.

West Vincent Township Police, however, concluded the dogs were not pursuing Pilotti's sheep at the time he fired the 20-gauge single-shot shotgun he legally owns and killed one dog by shooting it in the face. Pilotti reloaded his gun and then shot the second dog as it was fleeing, the district attorney said today.
