Animal Cruelty charge brought against Logan man

Police have arrested 22-year old Logan resident Emilio D. Hoy on a felony charge of cruelty to animals. Lt. Rod Peterson says Hoy was arrested Friday and booked into the Cache County Jail on the charge stemming from an incident that occurred in late December 2009. Police reports state Hoy was in an apartment complex near 1400 North 240 West in Logan when he allegedly picked up a Jack Russell Terrier dog by its tail and repeatedly shot it in the testicles with an airsoft gun. The dog’s owner is an acquaintance of Hoy. Peterson says police are looking into filing charges against others who were involved in the incident.
