Couple Accused of Trying to Kill Dog

A man and woman from Mount Jewett are accused of trying to kill a dog.

34-year-old Tyler Rush and 24-year-old Ashley Reinard are each charged with cruelty to animals in connection to an August 8 incident when Reinard allegedly told Rush to kill a dog that had been injured because she said there was no saving it.

According to court records, Rush tried to snap the dog’s neck, and when that didn’t work he tried to cut its throat with a pocket knife. The dog survived.

Rush and Reinard are both free on unsecured bail.
