SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – A woman who threw a Chihuahua to its death from the seventh floor of a San Francisco parking garage has been sentenced to three years in jail.

Wakeen “LaLa” Best was sentenced Thursday for animal cruelty, auto burglary and vandalism.

The San Francisco Chronicle says Best swore at the judge after he refused to let her serve time in a drug treatment facility.

Prosecutors say Best – who has a long criminal record – entered the Stockton-Sutter Street Garage in February, broke into a parked Mercedes and took a 4-year-old male Chihuahua named Dunky while the owner was at lunch.

Authorities say the dog barked at the intruder and she tossed it off the building.

Investigators identified Best as the suspect based on surveillance video.
