A Rankin County man has been charged with animal cruelty.

A dog Martin had tied in the back of his pickup fell out and was dragged for about eight tenths of a mile before he stopped at a store in Robinhood. 

When Martin saw the injured dog, he untied the animal, put the rope in the back of his truck and drove off, leaving the dog in the store parking lot.
