GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - A northeastern Wyoming man has been bound over for trial on charges that he shot a neighbor’s bull, rendering it incapable of being used for breeding.

The Gillette News Record reports (https://bit.ly/2qCxMzO ) Circuit Court Judge Wendy Bartlett found probable cause to suspect 50-year-old Todd Slattery in the shooting. He is scheduled to enter a plea to a charge of felony destruction of property during a June 1 hearing.

The bull was shot in the penis, testicles and hindquarter last July, while the owners were away from their property east of Gillette. The owner estimated it would cost $13,000 to $15,000 to replace the bull, which was euthanized.

Court records say the owner told investigators Slattery had threatened the animal in a dispute over a fence that separated the bull from Slattery’s cows.
