Steven Romero, taken from the federal building in Grand Junction earlier this year.

The man who dragged Buddy the dog to death last winter on Colorado National Monument will serve three years in federal prison and then a year of supervised probation.

U.S. District Judge Philip A. Brimmer today also fined Steven Romero $500 and ordered him to pay $345 to Buddy’s owners.

Romero dragged Buddy behind his pick-up truck through the Colorado National Monument, and “in doing so needlessly mutilated, tortured and killed the dog,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
