Investigation revealed that the dog entered a chicken coop behind a nearby residence and killed all five chickens. The owner of the chickens discovered the dog inside the coop and shot the dog with a shotgun, causing it to flee the area.

A consult with Environmental Conservation Police and the Ontario County District Attorney's Office revealed that there are no criminal offenses as the owner was protecting his livestock. As such, the case will be closed.
