MAPLE SHADE, N.J. (CBS) — A Burlington County man will spend the next five years in prison for shooting his neighbor’s dog. William Stroemel used an air rifle to shoot the pomeranian-poodle mix, named Toby, outside his Maple Shade home back in 2019.
The dog had to be put down a day later.
Stroemel pleaded guilty to gun and animal cruelty charges.
As part of the plea deal, he also has to pay for Toby’s veterinary care.
