A man who shot a Labrador retriever as many as 100 times with a BB gun has made a plea deal. Aaron Armstrong was charged with animal cruelty after he shot the dog while drunk last summer, police said. An X-ray showed the dog had BBs embedded in its muzzle, head, body. and legs. WGME-TV reported Friday that Armstrong’s plea deal sentenced him to time served, more than three months, and two years of probation. Terms of probation prevent him from having a pet.
