MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - A jury on Wednesday convicted a Semmes man of aggravated animal cruelty after determining that he shot a retired police dog.
Prosecutors alleged that Sidney Tarrel Foreman, 62, was driving a Dodge Ram on Heater Station Road in December 2021 when he rolled down his window and shot a woman’s German Shepherd, a retired K-9 dog.
It is not clear what the motive was, Mobile County District Attorney Keith Blackwood said.
“We are, you know, very happy that a jury unanimously agreed with us, found the defendant guilty of animal cruelty for injuring this dog, that was a retired service dog,” he said.
Sentencing is set for July 20. Foreman faces up to 10 years in prison.
