JACKSON COUNTY, W. Va. — Jackson County authorities have decided not to press charges against a man who shot and killed a neighbor's donkey after it attacked and attempted to mate with several of his cattle.

Police say the events that transpired two weeks ago were unfortunate but left a property owner with no choice but to use force. Gordon was a 4-year-old pet donkey belonging to Jessica Knox of Gay. The Knox family has a farm on Frozen Camp Creek Road, where the donkey lived in a fenced-in area.
