2 weeks ago my beloved Black Lab had to be put to sleep, I would do anything to have her back. This scum has no respect for life, I pray he will be brought to justice. Our country needs stiffer laws for animal abuse, this man should be set as an example. If he can blow up a dog-is a child next?

You would think they would drug test him at arrest. This guy was obviously doped up on Meth or some crap. If not, he is a sociopath acting out first on animals and will progress. 2 years in jail will not be enough. He will come out and escalate to people!! Hello? Mr Prosecutor... do the research on heinous murderers who first horribly hurt animals. Please, Please Please, put this guy away also on Animal Cruelty and set a precedent for others that animal cruelty is not tolerated! Mark my...

Mark my words, it is nearly always a launch pad to worse crimes against humanity when started with innocent animals.

Not to charge him with felony animal cruelty is absolutely insane! This monster is a psychopath! What is wrong with Skamania County and the sheriff?! This is animal cruelty to the fullest extent! Shame on them for not seeing this and not going after this guy for an absolutely heinous crime! He also took the life of this innocent beautiful dog- doesn't that mean something! It's just too bad that he didn't blow himself up instead- what a horrific deed and how depraved he is! I wouldn't...

I wouldn't want to live or even visit there if they don't take this horrific cruelty seriously!!

I hope he follows through with the animal cruelty charges. They should be at the top of the list. Thanks, Julie Ann, for sharing the response from the DA.

At this time, the prosecutor is still reviewing the circumstances surrounding the charged incident in order to determine whether animal cruelty charges are also warranted. “We are reviewing the animal cruelty statutes and case law, and if the law allows, we will file additional charges in relation to the killing of the dog,” said Adam Kick, the Skamania County Prosecutor.
