A man said he shot his neighbor’s pit bull to protect himself, his wife and his chickens.

Police arrested 43-year-old Andrew Freisinger on Wednesday after they said he shot 1-year-old Mya on Sept. 6, as she was running across the front yard of his Epping home.

The shot left a bullet hole on her left cheek and took off a part of her tongue.

WFXT-TV reported the dog owner’s mother said Freisinger looked at her and “smirked” when he fired.

Freisinger’s attorney said he fired as the dog approached his client and that the dog had killed a chicken the day before.

He appeared by video conference in Brentwood Circuit Court on Thursday on charges including animal cruelty and reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon.

He’s due in court Sept. 24.
