Freisinger claimed Mya was being aggressive and he was only acting in defense of his family and his chickens ... but the police disagree. After interviewing both Freisinger and Mya's family, police concluded Mya wasn't actually aggressive.
She wasn't running toward Freisinger at all, according to her family, she was just running back home. "She's the biggest lover," Keezer told the Union Leader.
Freisinger was charged with animal cruelty and reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon. Mya was rushed to a nearby animal hospital.
The bullet went through her cheek, and during surgery, part of her tongue had to be removed. "For awhile I thought I was going to lose my baby, my best friend, my comforter," Keezer wrote on a fundraising page she set up to help cover the costs of Mya's care.
