HOUMA - Police in Houma say a man faces animal cruelty charges after he reportedly killed his neighbor’s pit bull in an act of revenge after the canine bit his son.
60-year-old Karl Kohman, of Houma, is now accused of shooting the 2-year-old dog with a .22 caliber handgun on Saturday, according to The Courier.
