Posted at 4:22 PM, Mar 15, 2019

ESTILL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– There was not enough evidence to indict the man accused of shooting a hound dog in Estill County.

The case had been sent to a grand jury, but they could not indict.

Charles Collins was the man accused of shooting Hunter the hound, who was found dead on a road in Irvine.

Hunter was the first rescue dog in Estill County and two of his half brothers have been donated to Hunter’s owner David Conrad. Conrad will train the two dogs to be search dogs for his new organization Hunter Hounds Search and Rescue.

“Anytime I’m private like this, we can do a whole lot more. We can work with our police officers, we can go outside the county, work criminal cases outside of the county,” said Conrad.
