She’s more of a cat person.
A Colorado woman wearing a cat-themed t-shirt was arrested for trying to poison her neighbor’s dog, according to reports.
Margaret Werker, 73, was convicted of felony animal cruelty earlier this month for throwing a poisonous substance over her neighbor’s fence and at his dog, Wrigley, according to The Gazette.
The act itself, which happened in April, was caught by her neighbor’s surveillance camera.
The neighbor alerted police and Werker was arrested in May, the report said.
It was later determined by investigators that the substance Werker threw was likely ground chicken dipped in antifreeze, according to police records obtained by 11 News.
The dog did not consume any of the chicken.
Werker pleaded guilty on July 9 and received a deferred sentence. She was ordered to pay a $ 250 fine to the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region.
In Werker’s booking photo, she wore a black t-shirt with a black and white cat in the center.
Authorities believe Werker may have been annoyed over Wrigley’s barking.
“There were some concerns with some complaints about a barking dog in that area,” HSPPR Assistant Director told the station.
“We weren’t really ever able to pinpoint down who it was coming from. But, we believe that’s where it stemmed from, a barking issue.”
