JACKSON TWP., Pa. -

A Poconos man is accused of animal cruelty after allegedly shooting a dog with a BB rifle.

State Police say it happened on Wednesday when 30-year-old Joshua Staples shot at a dog that was on his property in the 1300 block of Kroucher Road in Jackson Township.

The BB was lodged in the dog's back and will require additional care to have it removed, police said.
