Man sentenced for hanging cat and dog


A southeast Iowa man has been sentenced to spend 10 days in jail for killing the family cat and dog.  Billy Lee Kracht, of Danville, had pleaded guilty to one count of animal torture and one of animal neglect. Friday, Kracht was given 10 days for the animal torture, and his jail term of a year for the animal neglect was suspended.  The Des Moines County Sheriff's Office says the 39-year-old told deputies he got upset when he found the cat out of its cage in July, so he hanged it. He also admitted fatally injuring the dog by falling on it.
