OCONTO, Wis. (AP) — A woman is charged in Oconto County with dragging a dog behind her car, killing the animal.
Twenty-eight-year-old Jordan McDonald is charged with a felony for mistreating the dog, causing its death and misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
WLUK-TV reports the criminal complaint says McDonald got into an argument Sunday night and left a residence with the dog tied to her vehicle. Police were called, pulled McDonald over about three miles away and found the dog, which died a few minutes after an officer loosened the rope.
McDonald says she didn’t know the dog was tied to the vehicle. She’s due back in court Thursday for the balance of her initial appearance.
