Man breaks into North Fort Myers home and shoots dog in face
LEE COUNTY, Fla.– Lee County deputies responded to a report of a dog that had been shot in the nose on Monday in North Fort Myers.
According to investigators, Anthony Hallmon walked into someone’s home, uninvited, and shot a dog. Reportedly, the dog is accused of biting him.
A report from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office said Hallmon was riding an electric scooter down McDaniel Street in Suncoast Estates when he crashed in front of a home near Cantor Lane.
Once Hallmon was on the ground, a dog from the nearby residence bit him on the ankle prompting him to threaten the dog and leave the scene.
The report says someone living at the home with the dog went to a neighbors RV to hide the dog from Hallmon. Hallmon broke into the RV with a handgun, shot the dog in the snout, and ran.
The dog named Safari was found with a small hole in his snout. Officials took the injured animal to Domestic Animal Services to be treated.
Hallmon was later arrested. While deputies were taking him into custody, Fentanyl was found in his possession. Hallmon has been charged with animal cruelty, burglary with assault, and possession without a prescription.
Safari is expected to make a full recovery.
