|I am sorry to hear about your cat. I will say that my dogs have both been very prey driven from day 1, mostly mice, squirrels, rabbits - lately deer. They have killed mice, squrrels, and rabbits, but never a deer. They are no more aggressive to people (either tall or short) or any other animal. They are indifferent to cats, as long as the cats are still.
From my experience, limited as it is, your dog was just being a dog. There may be issues in the future with prey drive, but teaching him the 'leave it' command does work - it has worked for my two.
