A man who ‘lost the plot’ after a row with his sister armed himself with an air rifle and shot dead her pet DONKEY.
Raging Darrell Duffill, 54, blasted 10-year-old Claude in the temple before firing two more shots as it lay twitching on the ground.
Duffill, who lives in a cabin on land owned by his sister Carolyn Jones, had been arguing with her shortly before the attack at their home near Looe in Cornwall.
He admitted one charge of criminal damage at Bodmin Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday and was remanded in custody until 23 March while probation reports are prepared.
