A 65-year-old man faces an array of charges after shooting a squirrel in his yard Monday morning, police said in a press release.

James Toigo, 258 Housatonic Dr., was charged with unlawful discharge of a firearm, cruelty to an animal, first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree breach of peace, failure to register an assault rifle and three counts of possessing large-capacity magazines, according to a police press release from Officer Jeffrey Nielsen.

Police officers were directing traffic in the area of Housatonic Drive when they heard a gunshot nearby, according to the release.

Upon investigation, Toigo was taken into custody after police said he shot the squirrel.

Police said they also found an unregistered assault rifle, as well as three large-capacity magazines, in Toigo’s home. Both the firearms and the magazines were taken, the release said.

Nielsen said the assault riffle was not the gun Toigo shot the squirrel with.


“As the investigation progressed the officers seized several firearms from the home for safe keeping,” Nielsen said. “That included the assault riffle and the three high capacity magazine he did not have registered.”

Nielson said he believes the majority of the seized firearms were registered. Those weapons will remain in police custody until Toigo’s case is heard, Nielson said. Depending on the outcome, Toigo will need to petition the police department to have his guns returned.

Toigo was released on a promise to appear May 13 in court.

Assault rifle, really? Or was it just a Pop-Tart?
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

Bloody big squirrel.

To paraphrase Alfred E. Neumann, "What, no warrant?". Unless [a] He shot the squirrel in his house, or he had the 'assault rifle' slung over his back [in case big game showed up], what was the basis for the search that led to the weapons and magazines seized?  :shrug:
