Young men charged in bow and arrow killing of dog

ROB TUCKER; The News Tribune

Pierce County prosecutors charged two men with first-degree animal cruelty Friday, alleging they killed a dog with a bow and arrow after tying it to a tree.

Prosecutors charged Steven L. Paulson and Troy L. Loney with one count each of the felony crime. Authorities said on March 8 they roped the dog, probably a Siberian husky, to a tree near Wilkeson Elementary School around 5 p.m. and shot it "numerous times" using a bow and one arrow.

The two men allegedly would remove the arrow from the dog's body and reuse it to shoot the dog again.

A witness said the men took turns and shot the dog at least 10 times, deputy prosecutor Dennis Ashman said in charging documents filed in Pierce County Superior Court.

After the dog died, the men threw its body into Wilkeson Creek, he said.

Police decided not to arrest the pair, said Jim Osborn, a Buckley police detective and Wilkeson town marshal. Both men told authorities they had used a bow and arrow to kill the dog, Ashman said.

Both will be summoned when a court date is set. They must appear or face arrest, he said.

If convicted, Paulson, 20, and Loney, 18, could face maximum prison sentences of five years each and fines of $10,000 each. But sentencing guidelines for a first offense call for less jail time - up to a year, Ashman said.

Neither man could be reached for comment.

Paulson is the son of Wilkeson Mayor Doug Paulson, according to police.

    If they could do this to a dog which is a living creature that feels love, pain and puts their trust in us, then what next? A child? Another human or another animal? This type of behavior will continue if nothing is done. I have cried over this loving dog
