JOHANNESBURG - A man has appeared in the Krugersdorp Magistrates Court for shooting and killing his dog.

He has been charged with discharging a firearm in a municipal area.

The SPCA removed the dog's body but has yet to confirm whether it will be taking action.

The police's Lucky Matome said, "We cannot confirm his state of mind or if he was under the influence of alcohol because we did not test him for that. We arrested him for the crime he committed."
