In Cheyenne, Wyoming, a woman faces charges of misdemeanor animal cruelty for shooting her two dogs in the back of her home in order to “send them to heaven,” reports KgabNews.
Peggy Jo Wilson, 58, was charged on Friday, for allegedly shooting her two dogs named Gordy and Snickers with a pistol because the dogs were not allowed in the home she was moving into and the dogs had previously been indoor pets. Originally arrested on Wednesday, the Laramie County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report from Wilson’s ex-husband at their residence on Tate Road that his ex-wife had killed their two dogs.
According to police documents, Peggy Jo had been moving back into the home with Patrick Williams (her ex-husband) and the man’s current girlfriend, but the dogs were not allowed in the home. Peggy Jo felt the dogs would feel as if they were being punished if kept in the garage, and decided to shoot and kill them.
Lieutenant Don Hollingshead issued the following statement:
“This is kind of a menage a trois. Peggy was moving back into the house with her ex-husband and her ex-husband’s girlfriend. The ex-husband’s girlfriend didn’t want the dogs in the house so she went out to her car, got her .25 caliber pistol and shot the dogs.”
Rest in peace Gordy and Snickers.
