Man arrested in Campbell County puppy shooting

Chance Dalton Davis

The Campbell County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a man they say is connected to a dog that was found shot in the head.

Chance Dalton Davis, of Louisiana, was arrested and charged with cruelty to animals Friday evening.

The dog was found at about 1 p.m. Sept. 5 in a crate about 100 yards off the side of Holcomb Path Road, Campbell County Animal Control Officer Benny David said.

The 7- to 8-month-old male Labrador/pit bull mix was dead when David arrived.

A $7,000 reward was offered for the arrest and conviction of the person involved.

David said they received at least 100 tips with information; one of those tips led to the arrest.

“Thanks to the public for all help and tips,” David said. “Even those that didn’t pan out. I helps to know people are concerned.”
