Battle Lake, Minn. (WDAY TV) – There is an active search for a Battle Lake man accused of slitting a dog's throat.

The Otter Tail County Sheriff says they've gotten a few leads since 23-year old Ben Stavaas failed to appear in court Monday. There is a warrant for his arrest.

The sheriff encourages Stavaas to turn himself in. The arrest would simply bring Stavaas back for his court appearance, but not showing up for court hearings is sometimes used as a reason to keep a defendant in jail during his or her case.
