An altercation between dogs on the Frog Lake First Nation, left a man in hospital and a 17-year-old boy in handcuffs.
It took place on Monday, with RCMP saying the man’s dog began fighting with two other dogs — as the man was driving his ATV through a residential property owned by the boy’s family.
The man pulled a sword from his ATV to defend his dog, and that’s when investigators say the youth suddenly appeared and opened fire on the man with a shotgun.
At last report, he was in stable condition at the U of A Hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg.
The youth, who is too young to be named, is expected to answer to unspecified charges in St Paul Provincial Court on the 1st of September. (td)
