CAMPS, Fla. – A Florida woman is accused of the fatal shooting of a pit bull puppy that they said was misbehaving.
The Pensacola News Journal reports that the 27-year-old Amanda Cay Carpenter was charged with animal cruelty and firing a weapon in public about the Dec. 15 incident at a Pensacola mobile-home park.
An Escambia County Sheriff’s arrest report says Carpenter told investigators the 9-month-old puppy chewing and damaged a number of items in her room. The report says that they tried to keep the dog in a kennel, but it would not go inside.
The report says Carpenter picked up the dog; it tried to bite at her face. Deputies say they took the dog outside and shot multiple times.
She is in jail on a $20,000 bond. Records are not a lawyer who can be approached for a response to her name.
