Iowa Man Gets Jail For Giving Vodka To Puppy

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa City man accused of giving vodka to a puppy and nearly killing it has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for animal abuse.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports that Jared Colony agreed to plea guilty in exchange for a 90-day jail sentence. He also agreed to pay a $625 fine and nearly $2,500 to the dog’s owner.

According to police, Colony was watching the 4-month-old puppy for a friend in October 2009. Police said he poured vodka into a bowl encouraged the puppy to drink it.

When the owner returned about 30 minutes later, the dog was unresponsive and barely breathing. The puppy was treated for alcohol poisoning at a veterinary hospital and survived.
