Man sentenced for killing Kauai dairy goat

By Associated Press

LIHUE » A 31-year-old man has been sentenced to two months in jail for killing a pregnant milking goat owned by a Kilauea dairy.

Russell Kekoa Hoomanawanui also was ordered Wednesday to pay $8,347.21 in restitution for the shooting of the farm animal on April 27, 2011.

A co-defendant, Ryan Winchell, was sentenced in April to 30 days in jail for his role in the goat death.

The Garden Island reports Judge Kathleen Watanabe called the shooting of the Kunana Dairy goat a senseless and unfortunate act.

She says she did not believe the defendants' story that they were hunting and didn't realized they had trespassed onto the dairy farm.

Hoomanawanui was convicted of felony livestock theft, criminal property damage and misdemeanor cruelty to animals.
