'Jackass' star didn't mean harm with puppy prank

The 33-year-old Margera had posted the photo on Twitter, saying that if the dog made a mess in his bed again "Penny goes Bye Byes." The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (http://bit.ly/SL6f9O ) that Margera says he loves animals and wished he had made it more clear the gun was fake.
Margera, who is from suburban Philadelphia, says it was a joke.
Chester County SPCA officials, however, say it wasn't funny, even for a shock comedian like Margera. SPCA spokesman Rich Britton says Margera "missed the mark on this one."
