ASTORIA, Ore. (KATU) - A 28-year-old woman was charged with first-degree animal abuse after police said she killed a Chihuahua by cooking it in an oven.
According to a probable cause affidavit from the Warrenton Police Department in Oregon, officers began investigating a report of animal abuse on Monday.
Someone told police that Noelle Georgia Moor had put her Chihuahua in an oven and cooked it.
When police contacted Moor, she told them that she placed the dog in the oven “because she thought an ex-boyfriend was inside the dog.”
The chihuahua was seven years old.
Officers went to the house to investigate and found a dead dog on the burner of the oven.
The dog’s corpse was transported to Clatsop County Animal Control for further investigation.
Moor was booked in the Clatsop County Jail on one count of first-degree animal abuse.
