Family dog shot for stealing food in Conifer, Colorado-March 12-Sentencing

A Jefferson County man who authorities said shot the family dog over a stolen morsel of food pleaded guilty Monday to charges of animal cruelty and prohibited use of a weapon, officials said.

Devin Shane Calhoun, 35, was arrested Aug. 12, 2007 after family members told police Calhoun took the dog, Lucky, outside and shot it following the theft of food from Calhoun's dinner plate. Lucky survived the gunshot wound.

Calhoun reportedly led the dog to a meadow near the house. His wife said she "heard one gunshot and the dog whine for a little bit."

Jefferson County district attorney spokeswoman Pam Russell said Calhoun faces up to 1 1/2 years in jail and a fine of up to $5,000. Sentencing will be March 12.
