    Frightened woman kills neighbor's Chihuahua with shotgun


    NAPLES, Fla. (AP) — A woman has been sentenced to 30 days in jail for killing her neighbor's Chihuahua with a shotgun, telling the dog's owner she was horribly frightened by the pooch.

    Wanda Ziglar, 49, of Golden Gate, pleaded no contest Tuesday to one felony count of animal cruelty. Senior Judge Jack Schoonover agreed to withhold a formal finding of guilt of the charge.

    She said in court that she grabbed a shotgun and fired two warning shots into the air to try to scare off the dog.
    "I was scared by the dog. It came out from behind my garbage can," said Ziglar.

    The dog's owner told Ziglar that she didn't believe her.

    "There's no way a 2-pound dog was going to scare you," Olegnichar said

    What a nut case! I guess we can all be thankful that it wasn't a toddler that came out from behind the trash cans.

    Oh my goodness, talk about overkill! A SHOTGUN!!!!
    Scared of a chihuahua? I guess it's possible (for some), but it hardly
    deserved to be shot.:( Sad.

    Gotta get going,

    much love,

    Ariel

    I have a chihuahua that will only let me touch him, walk him, or even sit on the couch with him. They're tough little dogs. Mine is 14 now.
