VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A Vancouver man suspected of dragging his dog behind his pickup truck and killing the animal is facing an animal cruelty charge.

The Columbian reports (http://bit.ly/1TZQPbL ) that David Kadow made his first court appearance Thursday. His bail was set at $75,000.

Police had responded Sunday to reports that a dog had been dragged by a truck.

Court documents say nearby resident Rikki Harvilo spotted the dog hanging from the side of Kadow’s vehicle. She allegedly drove after Kadow and began honking her horn, but he didn’t stop.

Police say Kadow refused to cooperate during their investigation. They obtained a search warrant and went inside his home, where they found the dead animal.

Kadow’s wife says the pit bull was her husband’s life and he had never been aggressive toward it.
