An Attleboro man is charged with animal cruelty after being accused of trying to stomp on goslings.


On Saturday a witness told police that 54-year-old Russell Shaw was kicking geese outside his Hillside Avenue apartment, then trying to stomp on their babies.

Shaw said he was annoyed by the birds but did not harm them. None of the animals appeared to need medical attention.

Shaw was arraigned Monday in Attleboro District Court and released on $1,000 bail.
