Carver County man charged after dog killed with bow and arrow

(KSTP) – A Carver County man has been charged after admitting to fatally shooting a family’s dog with a bow and arrow last month.

Thirty-three-year-old Benjamin Lee Schroeder is charged with one count of mistreatment of animals, a felony that can carry a sentence of up to two years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

On Oct. 12 at about 7:40 p.m., a Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officer was told that a dog had been shot and killed, a criminal complaint states.

Bria Swanson told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS last month that the 1-year-old Great Pyrenees, named Reba, had wandered onto the neighboring property when she was shot and killed by Schroeder with a bow and arrow.
