Hunter Shot For Shooting Man's Dog
GEORGES TWP. (KDKA) ―
A Fayette County man is facing charges after police say he shot a man who shot his dog.
George Bodnovich, 42, of Brownsville, is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment.
Police say Bodnovich shot 26-year-old Jonathan Harmon in the leg.
Harmon says he was riding his quad near the Hi-To Sportsmen Club in Fairchance when he shot what he thought was a coyote. But, the animal turned out to be Bodnovich's dog.
Harmon says Bodnovich began to shoot at him - blowing out the tire on his quad and hitting him in the leg.
Harmon's doctors say he'll be alright, but his mom is outraged.
Harmon says he's sorry any of this ever happened.
Police say the dog was wearing an orange vest at the time it was shot. They're now determining whether Harmon will face any charges.
Bodnovich was released on $50,000 bond. He didn't return calls seeking comment.
Bodnovich is expected to be in court tomorrow for a preliminary hearing.
