Miss. realtor accused of poisoning, killing dogs

– A Batesville businessman is accused of poisoning and killing area dogs.

Owner Jenny Herron is devastated that two of her dogs are dead.

“We got him and we nursed him back to health, and we brought him into our lives and he’s been with us for five years — and we love him like a member of the family,” she said.

Brad McCulley is the man Panola County investigators believe is responsible.

He’s now charged with administering poison to animals.

He’s a local realtor in the area and a neighbor to many of the dog owners.

The effects of this poison are very severe, the dogs generally suffer quite a bit before they die.
