An Enfield, Conn., man has been sentenced to 30 days in jail in the deaths of three hunting beagles that were shot and killed by his son. John Lake was not with his 13-year-old son when the boy shot the beagles in November, but the father said in court that he removed their collars and threw their bodies into a ravine after they were killed. He had told police that the dogs had interfered with previous deer hunts. The Journal Inquirer reported that Lake was sentenced Tuesday to a one-year prison term, suspended after 30 days, and three years of probation.
