A La Crosse man was cited Saturday for using a blowgun to kill a rabbit with a dart.

Homeowners on the 400 block of North Ninth Street reported seeing Bryant Joy kill the rabbit, La Crosse police said.

Police found a dead rabbit in a driveway, with a dart still attached, reports stated.

Joy, 19, of 908 Badger St., admitted shooting the rabbit but said "he did not know why he did it," according to reports.

He is due in La Crosse Municipal Court on Aug. 12 for his $164 citation.

Joy was cited under a municipal ordinance that bans city residents from discharging an air, spring or gas cartridge gun of any description without having written permission from the police chief.

Municipal Prosecutor Peter Kisken declined to comment on the case until he sees the report.
