Provincial police say a farmer who shot and injured a dog in Essex, near Windsor over the weekend will not face any charges.

OPP were called after someone reported a dog was shot Sunday night.

A farmer at the property admitted to shooting the dog with a small-calibre firearm, because he says the animal was on his property and he was protecting his livestock.

Essex OPP say the dog, which belonged to a neighbour, was taken to a vet and was treated.

Police say they have wrapped up their investigation and they won't be charging the farmer.

Cericola Farms of Bradford has been fined $400,000 for trying to market regular chicken as organic.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the company's records were inconsistent which made tracing activities difficult.

According to its analysis during a nine-month period, approximately 286,000 kilograms of poultry was sold in a manner likely to create an erroneous impression of its character and nature.

The CFIA said Cericola was unable to demonstrate otherwise.

The company faced eight counts, but settled the case by pleading guilty to two.

In addition to the fine, it was placed on one-year probation.
