ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — A suburban St. Louis woman will spend two days in jail for accidentally dragging her pit bull down Interstate 70.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 34-year-old Amy Taylor of Bridgeton was sentenced to the shock time in jail on Friday and ordered to pay veterinary bills for the 2-year-old dog, Coco. She pleaded guilty Monday to one count of misdemeanor animal abuse.
The dog was dragged for about a mile on May 22nd in St. Charles County. Authorities say Taylor put the dog in an unsecured kennel in the back of her pickup and failed to remove his leash. Somehow the dog got out of the kennel but the leash hung up on the tailgate.
Coco was badly hurt but survived.
Charges are filed against a man accused of lighting a dog on fire.
A north St. Louis resident came home in late August to find that his dog, a pit bull named Zeus, was missing. The owner's neighbor called police to say he found Zeus badly burned in the back yard. The Humane Society took Zeus and was forced to put the dog down due to the severity of the burning.
Prosecutors say Wesley Reid attacked the dog. Investigators examined Reid's phone and discovered he was in the area at the time of the attack and he sent text messages indicating he planned on burning the dog.
Reid faces up to four years in prison if convicted.
An Ellisville man who broke into his ex-girlfriend's home and attacked her small dog so severely that the animal had to be euthanized, was sentenced to eight years in prison Monday. In July, a St. Charles jury found Charles Zidek guilty of felony charges of animal abuse and burglary. St. Charles County Circuit Judge Rick Zerr gave the 37 year old Zidek a four-year term on each charge, to run consecutively. Prosecutors say Zidek entered the home of Diana Walkonis in October, 2011, by breaking out a basement window. Authorities say he then repeatedly threw her Italian greyhound, Vinny, against a bedroom wall. Walkonis found her pet when she returned home later that day. Zidek was linked to the crime when by blood found in the house near the broken window, matched his DNA.
The reward for information on who burned a dog that was found last month is higher.
Zeus was a pit bull. He was found with third-degree burns on over three-quarters of his body. Veterinarians determined his injuries were so severe that they were forced to euthanize him. The Humane Society has increased the reward from $2,500 to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest. Zeus' owner reported the dog missing from his Jennings home. Authorities found the dog badly burned in a neighbor's back yard.
Earlier this summer, a St. Louis woman was charged with felony animal abuse for setting a dog on fire and bragging about it on Facebook. That dog also died.
A St. Charles County man has been found guilty of breaking into an ex-girlfriend's house and beating her dog.
Charles Zidek broke into the woman's home in late 2011. Once inside the house, Zidek attacked her greyhound dog named Vinny. Vinny's injuries were so bad he had to be euthanized.
Zidek was convicted on two felony charges including animal abuse.
