YORKSHIRE – A Cattaraugus County woman is facing several charges after allegedly shooting and killing a dog in front of a child last week.
New York State Police say 51-year-old Jaki Ras was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated cruelty to animals following the alleged incident last Tuesday.
Troopers were first called to a residence on Weaver Road to investigate a gunshot complaint.
