Spring Valley man faces animal cruelty charges


SPRING VALLEY, Minn. (KTTC) -- A Spring Valley man is facing criminal charges for allegedly shooting a neighbor's dog.  Everett Kabage appeared in Mower County Court on Thursday.

Kabage has been charged with one count of animal cruelty.  He entered a plea of not guilty.  According to the complaint, his neighbor's two-year-old yellow Labrador was found by its owner in a field.  The dog's owner followed a trail of blood leading to Kabage's home. 

A Mower County sheriff's deputy questioned Kabage.  The complaint said Kabage appeared intoxicated and said he shot the dog because it was on his property.

The dog was wearing identification tags and a collar at the time.  The owner said it had gotten passed an invisible fence because of the heavy snow.

If convicted, Kabage could face three years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.
