Accused hunting dog killer indicted by grand jury
Silva, 81, charged with cruelty to animals, terroristic threatening, reckless endangering
An 81-year-old man accused of shooting and killing a pig hunter's dog was indicted by a grand jury Wednesday.
Anthony Silva was indicted on charges of terroristic threatening, cruelty to animals and reckless endangering.
Bail is set at $100,000.
Silva was accused of killing the dog in a ravine below his Pearl City home over the weekend.
The incident happened Saturday morning when Silva confronted a group of hunters in a wooded area below Aluka Loop.
A neighbor says Silva became upset when a hunting dog began attacking a sow that Silva had taken a liking to. The neighbor says Silva regularly feeds rural pigs that live below his property.
