The Humane Society of Cowlitz County reports that they have identified and questioned a 17 year-old Longview boy in connection with the killing and skinning of a pet goat, an incident that took place last summer on some property on Beacon Hill. Humane Society animal control officers say that a citizen tip led them to the 17 year-old, who apparently lives near the family where the killing took place. Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Deputies also assisted in the investigation and questioning. It’s reported that the teen “wants to be a hunter.” During the questioning, the teen admitted that he had snuck out of his own house in June of last year, went to the nearby home on Niblett Way, and then used zip ties, duct tape and a knife to catch, subdue and kill the family pet. At this time, charges have not been filed, but the case is being referred to the prosecutor’s office for a charging decision.
