Man Blows Up Dog Charged With Animal Cruelty

Has anyone been following this story out of WA state?  It's very disturbing, a man blew up a dog with explosives.  He originally was not charged with animal cruelty because they said the dog didn't suffer.  That has since been added to the charges against him and he could face 20 years in prison.  There was a lot of backlash regarding the initial charges.

There are additional links on that story. 

Do you think they made the right decision in charging him with animal cruelty?
