FRIDLEY, Minn. (AP) — Prosecutors in eastern Minnesota have charged a woman with animal cruelty for throwing her Chihuahua puppy against a dresser, killing the dog.
Police say 28-year-old Holly Boyd of Fridley told investigators she threw the dog at the dresser after getting upset with the puppy for urinating on her and her couch last week. She told police the dog hit the handle area of the dresser and went limp.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press says a conviction carries up to two years in prison.
