Angels Camp Man Arrested For Shooting Dog

Angels Camp, CA – The Angels Camp Police Department says Daniel A. Whitford was arrested Monday evening after he admitted to killing a one-year-old Labrador mix in the 1000 block of Mark Twain Rd.

Whitford reportedly told officers that he shot the dog because it chewed up one of his fishing poles. Whitford is not the owner of the dog.

The Police Department says additional charges are being considered, related to the unlawful discharge of a firearm in the city limits. Several neighbors in the area reported hearing a possible gunshot late Sunday evening.
