PITTSBURGH –A Pittsburgh man accused of taunting a police dog on Sunday was being held in jail on $100,000 bail. Police say Kenneth King, 23, taunted Benny, a German shepherd, as he walked by a police vehicle.

Police say King screamed that he hates dogs and threatened to kill the animal after it started barking.

King’s mother said the situation is serious, but questioned the high bail. She said people have been arrested for hurting people and they don’t have bail set that high.
