Woman who taped dog to fridge jailed

2010-07-10 12:24

Boulder - A Colorado woman convicted of taping her boyfriend's dog to a refrigerator in a jealous fit has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and three years' probation.

Twenty-one-year-old Abby Toll was sentenced on Friday after she was convicted of felony animal cruelty in April. She could have faced up to 18 months in prison.

Prosecutors say Toll used hair ties and packing tape to bind the snout and legs of her boyfriend's 2-year-old Shiba Inu named Rex, then taped the dog upside-down to the refrigerator.

Police say Toll told them she was getting back at her boyfriend, Brian Beck, for paying more attention to the dog than to her.

Beck pleaded guilty to misdemeanor attempted animal cruelty and was given a one-year deferred sentence.

Another family has adopted the dog.
