DANVILLE, Vt. — A Vermont man has been accused of shooting and killing his neighbor's dog.

Police in Danville said the 1-year-old black Labrador, named Berkeley, was shot in the face Sunday. The dog was found in the woods hours later by his owner, 30-year-old Jessica Buxton. She took him to an emergency veterinary clinic in Littleton, New Hampshire, where he died.
