UT City Councilman Resigns after Shooting Neighbor’s Chihuahua
A man who had served on the city council of tiny Tabiona, Utah, for about six years resigned May 17 after admitting to police that he shot his neighbor’s teacup Chihuahua for barking, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
According to the Uintah Basin Standard, Wilbert shot the nine-month-old Chihuahua, Rocky, on May 13 with a .22 caliber rifle, later telling county deputies that he was “sick of listening to the dog barking.”
