Deputies: Man fatally drags dog behind truck for miles

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) – A Kentucky man has been arrested after deputies say he dragged his dog for miles behind his truck, killing the animal.

Edmonson County Deputy Jordan Jones told WBKO-TV on Thursday that Calvin Dennis of Grayson County is facing an animal torturing charge, along with DUI and drug charges.

Deputies say Dennis had been in an argument when he sped away from a parking lot with his dog attached to the back of his truck. The sight prompted authorities and drivers to follow him.

Authorities say Dennis eventually dragged his dog for 15 to 20 miles.

Deputies say Dennis admitted to authorities that he had taken prescription pills and methamphetamine and had forgotten his dog was tied to the hitch of his truck.
