BARRE, Vt. (AP) - A man accused of using a bow and arrow to shoot and kill a horse in Vermont has been released on conditions after posting $10,000 bail.

The Times-Argus (https://bit.ly/2ezKNRu ) reports that 21-year-old Quinton Clayton faces charges including felony unlawful mischief and a misdemeanor count of animal cruelty. He was released on bail last week in Barre (BAYR’-ree).

Clayton pleaded not guilty to the charges on Oct. 27.

Authorities say the 23-year-old mare named Bunny was fatally shot last month in the city. Searchers discovered part of an arrow lying in a pasture. Another piece was found in the horse’s stomach. Police say the bow and arrow were reported stolen from the owner’s car.

Clayton faces up to seven years in prison if he’s convicted.
