Adrian James Teal

Dublin, GA: (Aug-23-07) Gene Brooks of Dublin brought charges against Adrian James Teal of Douglas, alleging that Teal deliberately shot his hunting dog, Buster. The suit stated that Brook, along with his brother Joe and Tripp Neal, were hunting feral hogs in Washington County on property estimated to be a tract of about 6,000 acres near the river. Buster was wearing two fluorescent orange collars, with one of those collars obviously a tracking collar. He had crossed the river, which marked the land line to a hunting club, while in pursuit of a hog. Brooks' hunting companion, Neal, told him the river was the property line, but before Brooks could call his dog back a shot was heard on the other side of the river. Teal admitted he was in the deer stand when the dog came near his stand and ruined his day hunting, which was the last day of the deer season of January 2005. Although Teal left the area after shooting the dog and had to be tracked down by Brooks, he admitted to shooting the dog. He also admitted that he knew it was someone's hunting dog, but that the dog was messing up his deer hunting and it had no right to be on that property. In a settlement reached, a Paulding County jury ordered Teal to pay Gene Brooks a total of $10,000 for his hunting dog. [COURIER HERALD: SHOT HUNTING DOG]
