South Salt Lake City Man Accused of Beating Dog
(KUTV) A South Salt Lake man is behind bars after police say he beat his dog outside his home on Tuesday.
Casey Bowman faces a third degree felony for torture of an animal.
Witnesses heard yelps from the animal and took pictures of Bowman allegedly hitting and pushing down on the dog.
Police say they identified the suspect based on photos, and took him into custody.
Bowman's dog, Angel, is being kept at a South Salt Lake City animal shelter until a judge decides if the dog will be removed from the home permanently.
