first_imgA man charged in the death of his dog, after the animal fell out of the bed of his truck and was dragged down the road, was sentenced to 90 days in jail following a two-day jury trial in Clark County District Court.Jurors found David Kadow guilty Friday afternoon of second-degree animal cruelty, a gross misdemeanor. They deliberated for 40 minutes before reaching their decision that Kadow either knowingly, recklessly or with criminal negligence inflicted unnecessary suffering or pain upon Hailey, his 10-year-old pit bull.The dog died May 22 after being swept under the truck’s rear passenger tire as the truck turned from East 28th Street onto Norris Road, court records show.Kadow, 52, had initially appeared in Superior Court on suspicion of first-degree animal cruelty, a felony. However, the case was exonerated a short time later after the Clark County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office determined there wasn’t enough evidence to prove there was intentional animal cruelty.During closing arguments Friday afternoon, Assistant Attorney Abby Powell, with the Vancouver City Attorney’s Office, reiterated that this wasn’t a case where Kadow intentionally abused his dog. But she said his actions were still reckless and negligent at the very least.last_img
