California man shoots neighbor's dog dead for chasing squirrel into his yard

A California man is mourning the loss of the family’s beloved Labrador retriever, who was shot dead by a ruthless neighbor after the dog chased a squirrel into his yard.

Marlon Caballero, of Pomona, told Fox LA that the family’s 8-year-old dog was shot dead on Sunday — just two weeks after they moved to the neighborhood.

The devastated man said he pleaded with his neighbor to let him get his pooch after he shot him three times, but the heartless man refused.

“I’m pleading with the neighbor, ‘Hey, please give me my dog, let me have my dog. I can save him if you give me my dog,’” Caballero told the news outlet.

When Caballero ran back into his home to call 911, he heard several more gunshots.  

“He goes to the back of his yard and basically unloads another at least six rounds from the revolver that I saw that he had,” Caballero told Fox LA.

“And from right there, it just broke my heart. Just how could somebody do that to [a] dog,” he added.

“I bought this property solely for my doggy, to run around freely. For this to happen, it’s unimaginable,” Marlon Caballero said.

The neighbor, who has not been named, was charged with animal cruelty and discharging a firearm in a public area.  

“I bought this property solely for my doggy to run around freely. For this to happen, it’s unimaginable,” said Caballero, who has filed a restraining order against the neighbor.
