ARDMORE, Okla. -- A Wilson man is being held in the Carter County Jail in Ardmore after scuffling with neighbors and shooting his own dog.

The Wilson police chief says J.D. Shivers was jailed Sunday night after his neighbors called police to say he was shooting into their yard and at his dog.

Witnesses told police that Shivers would shoot at his dog, then call it back to him, then shoot at it again before eventually killing the dog.

The dog was reportedly disposed of by the time officers arrived at the home Sunday night.

Shivers is being held on complaints of assault and battery with a deadly weapon and other offenses.

    I hope he meets lots of friends in jail that thinks he has a pretty mouth and makes him squeal like a fat pig that he is.

    To anonymous have you not looked in Oklahoma lately at least in Marshall Co. I think we have already been sold to Mexico. You may need to do some checking around though Mr. Shivers probably came from Texas

    Anonymous what is your problem? Casey is right the man is to mean and sorry and he should get a lot of prison time. And animal cruelity is a felony in Oklahoma. And I too hope that the Judge does not go easy on this man.

    Stupid Okies. Prime proof of how ignorant that state is. I wish we would sell Oklahoma to Mexico or something. Actually, instead of building a wall around the Mexican border, we should build it along the Red River and keep out the Oklahomans.

    This man must be totally heartless and without any morals. The poor dog trusted him to the point that even with the loud concussion of the gunshots he would return to his masters voice, scared but loyal. What a heartless bastard. If he has children CPS should probably interview them as I'm sure they, too, have been tormented by this man. One of the primary indicators of an abuser is animal cruelty. I hope the judge and jury will give him the maximum possible sentence, which in and of itself, will be too good for him. There is no place in mankind for evil people like him........

    As a dog lover and a strong advicate for animal rights, I think the legal system should set an example with this freak. May be he should be helt down with head under water for the three count, revieved and dipped in again and again repeating the process for days on end. And then when he thinks its over drop a hair dryer in the water with him. And then feed him to the fire ants.

    I agree with Leann of Sherman!!!! As well as Phil in Sherman. Poor dog.......to show loyalty by going toward the "master" probably knowing it was going to get shot again..........Yeah, give him the max!

    This is the most outrageous form of aminal cruelty. To think the loyal dog would return to him so he could try to kill the defenseless animal. This should be delt with severly. He had no regards to anyone or anything in the neighborhood. I do not want someone like him to live anywhere around me.
