SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Sioux Falls man is charged with animal cruelty after the Humane Society alerted police to a Facebook post allegedly showing him slamming and strangling two dogs.

The Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/1PkIErV ) that a grand jury has indicted Nicholas Snowden on four counts, each of which carries a maximum punishment of two years in prison.

Snowden was jailed without bond and it was not immediately clear if he has an attorney. He told authorities that the angle of the Facebook video made the alleged incident appear worse than it was.

Authorities say the dogs belonged to Snowden’s former girlfriend. He’s also accused of burning a dog with scalding water.
