PRICE, Utah (KSTU) -- A Carbon County man has been arrested on suspicion of aggravated cruelty to animals.
According to a probable cause statement, 63-year-old Lonnie Campbell was in his workshop Monday when he saw a dog chasing his chickens and taking one from his back yard.
The owner of the Alaskan malamute dog told officers he was walking his dog along a railroad track when the dog noticed the chickens in the back yard. The owner lost control of the dog's leash as it ran after the chickens.
According to court documents, Lonnie Campbell got into his truck and chased after the dog and ran over the dog, killing it.
