COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The Eutawville man accused of shooting two of his dogs, one of them fatally, has been brought back to South Carolina to face charges of ill treatment of animals.

Michael Havens, II is returned from Arkansas to make his first court appearance since the March incident. Bond was immediately set for Havens at $5,000. 

“Arkansas wasn’t far enough to get away from our bringing him to justice,” Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said. “We made certain authorities there knew we’d come get him. We appreciate their taking him into custody.”

Ravenell said investigators have been searching for Havens since a March 25 incident involving the man’s dogs.

OCSO deputies were originally sent to Knott Drive, where residents said they heard the sound of gunshots and dogs yelping from a residence on their street. Investigators found Haven, who said he shot his dogs due to complaints from neighbors about the animals, according to a sheriff’s office incident report. One animal ran off after being shot while another was tied to a tree.

Animal control went to the home and retrieved the animals. The surviving dog, Lily, was treated for injuries to her mouth and nose area.
