Woman to police: 'There's a dog taped to the fridge'

BOULDER, Colo. — Police found an 8-month-old puppy - its feet, snout and tail bound in clear packing tape, a plastic bag and elastic hair ties - stuck to the side of a refrigerator in a Boulder home Tuesday morning, the apparent victim of a domestic dispute between its owner and his girlfriend.

Abby Toll, 20, was arrested on suspicion of felony animal cruelty after telling police she taped the puppy, a shiba inu named Rex, to the fridge because she was angry at her boyfriend for not getting rid of his pet after it had bitten her.

“There’s a dog taped to the fridge,” she reportedly told an officer who responded to a call about a domestic incident at the apartment in the 2900 block of East Aurora Avenue around 5 a.m. Tuesday. “I know this looks bad. We were going to get rid of him anyway. We usually don’t do this.”


You don't usually duct-tape your puppy to the fridge? This is like, something you do only for special occasions? ;]
