SAN ANGELO, Texas — An elderly woman accused of poisoning a dog with antifreeze was arrested.
Sarah Alley Howell, 81, is charged with cruelty to non-livestock animals.
She was indicted on Oct. 7.
According to the indictment, Howell put a tray of weenies, soaked in antifreeze in her front yard back in August.
She was taken to the vet who confirmed Tiny had consumed antifreeze and nothing could be done.
She was put to sleep a few hours later.
Tiny’s owner believes Howell did it because she was tired of dogs pooping in her yard.
Howell was released on a $7,500 bond.
If convicted, she faces up to two years in jail and a $10,000 fine.
