A Buffalo man accused of dragging his pit bull chained to his SUV through West Side streets Sunday morning is in jail in lieu of $25,000 bail, Buffalo police said Monday.

Daniel Delaney, 36, who is charged with aggravated animal cruelty, was arraigned in Buffalo City Court.

The dog, named “Gotti,” had the pads stripped from his paws, said officials of the SPCA Serving Erie County, which is treating the dog. Police said Delaney, who was pulled over on Arkansas Street, told a city K-9 officer he forgot the dog was still chained to his vehicle.
