AUBURN (CBS13) – Police say that an Auburn woman was scheming to kill her neighbor’s dog.
The woman, 45-year-old Tanya Meeth, was apparently fed up with how much her neighbor’s dog was barking, according to a press release from the Auburn Police Department.
Investigators say that Meeth then left an item baited with food on her neighbor’s property along the 100 block of Toyon Drive. The item, if eaten, would have seriously injured or killed the dog, police say.
The dog avoided eating the item and Meeth was arrested on April 8 on an attempted cruelty to animals charge.
Meeth has since been released from custody on a $10,000 bond.
