BOULDER — A decision by the Boulder County District Attorney's Office to dismiss felony animal cruelty charges against a man accused of killing a raccoon is riling animal rights activists.

Activists say the killing at least violates hunting regulations, but the Boulder district attorney maintains that there is not an appropriate charge available to prosecute the case.

Jace Griffiths was arrested in November after he told police he killed a raccoon with a bat so he could take its hide.

District Attorney Stan Garnett says he has no evidence the animal was not killed quickly and painlessly.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera (http://tinyurl.com/k2uotel ), Griffiths declined comment.
