Laws vary from state to state, and "it's all context," said Diane Balkin, a staff attorney for the Animal Legal Defense Fund, a California-based nonprofit group.

One conclusion might be reached if, say, a cat was lured by a disgruntled neighbor onto property with sardines with the purpose of killing it, she said. It might be a different story if a dog had a history of menacing people and was doing so when shot. (Other laws typically apply in cases of dogs that kill livestock, which the law views as having economic value.)
"I don't believe anywhere that there's carte blanche that you can kill an animal trespassing on your property," Balkin said. "It so depends on context and circumstances."
When people are charged in these sorts of cases, it's usually with animal cruelty, she said, which is a felony in all 50 states and is now being tracked by the FBI. In November, for example, an Alabama man was charged with animal cruelty after fatally shooting a neighbor's dog for pooping in his yard.
