HAGERSTOWN -- A Williamsport woman whose dog was killed Thursday was in Washington County District Court Monday morning to ask for a peace order against the man charged in connection with the dog's death.
A German Shepherd named Harley was shot several times Thursday night with a high-powered rifle after the dog wandered onto property owned by Jeffrey Hurd, 54, Washington County District Court documents show.
Renee Rudolph and her father have filed requests for peace orders against Hurd. Rudolph said Friday that the peace order requests were filed after she and her father felt threatened by something Hurd said Thursday night.
Hurd was not in court Monday morning. Hurd, of 11845 Camden Road, was charged with animal cruelty and malicious destruction of property in connection with the dog's death. Hurd also was charged in connection with the July 2007 death of a Labrador retriever that was on his property, troopers said.
