In McMinnville, Oregon, a woman who shot and killed her neighbors’ two dogs because they wandered onto her property was sentenced on Wednesday to two days in jail. Nicole Wood, 43, killed the dogs using a hunting rifle and a handgun for apparently  killing her cat months earlier.

According to Oregon Live,  Wood  must also pay a $1,000 fine, be on probation for 18 months, complete 200 hours of community service and give up the two guns she used to kill the dogs on November 19, 2017.

The dogs were owned by two separate families who lived nearby. Wood stated the dogs were a menace to the neighborhood, and said she had warned one of the owners that if the dogs entered her property, she would kill them. And that’s what she did in November. Since the dogs, a three-year-old German shorthair pointer named Danner and a six-year-old Boxer named Shelby were not being aggressive towards humans or animals, Wood was charged with animal cruelty.

Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office says someone can kill a neighbor’s dog if it is chasing, injuring or killing their livestock or threatening a human. Otherwise, it is important to call authorities and not take the law into one’s own hands.

After the two day trial, Wood was found guilty of two misdemeanors of first-degree animal abuse. The judge acquitted her of felony animal abuse. Wood is a veterinary technician and a registered nurse.

Rest in peace Danner and Shelby.

    People take justice into their own hands and this is what happens. Her feelings for her cat aside, she should have dealt with this legally not like this. So now 3 families are grieving the loss of their pets, her and the other two families. How ignorant of her and should have been in jail longer.

    Hand this Total bitch Been convicted of The Felony she would have to forfeit her Nursing License, which should have happened… I wonder when she will lose her “cool” and abuse a patient… She has absolutely No business being in a profession that deals with the lives and well being of others… She does not have the qualities and the compassion to be responsible for any Living , Breathing , Creature … It was not the dogs fault : it was their humans fault the dogs were not contained… Hide!!! and watch this is not the last time this “Nurse”!!! will be in the news down the road

    As usual a “slap on the wrist” for murdering two dogs! You would think a Vet Tech / Nurse would have more compassion and patience with family pets! As glad as I am they took away her guns, she needed more jail time, fines and community service to make up for what she did!

    I think this is absolutely horrible!!! Murdering animals just becaue you can???
    On the other hand….. I do not care if you live on a mountain top. On a farm. All alone out in never never land……………….. IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR FURBABIES INJURED DO NOT ALLOW THEM FREE RANGE!! I do not understand that! WHY take the chance they will get hurt, or killed, and you will not know in time to help them, if you ever find out!! WHY???? WHY???? Why take that chance? I will never understand it.

      She should NEVER BE ALLOWED TO TOUCH ANOTHER ANIMAL!!!!!! HOW CAN THEY LET SOMEONE WHO DID THIS TREAT ANIMALS??????!!! THAT IS SICK AND PERVERTED. ANYONE WHO HAS AN ANIMAL SHE MAY COME IN CONTACT WITH NEEDS TO KNOW WHAT THE BITCH DID BEFORE SHE EVER LAYS ONE HAND ON THEIR ANIMAL!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!! IM PISSED!!!!!!!!!!!! And SCREAMING! And if someone who did something like this (killing dogs for no real reason other than personal anger) ever treated an animal of mine and I found out. There would be HOLY HELL TO PAY!!!!##!!!!

    The ONLY danger here is this idiot woman and the braindead judge who gave her a slap on the hand for murdering two dogs – she killed them because they wandered onto her property – exactly WHY is that an acceptable reason??? And this asshole is a nurse. She blames the dogs for killing her cat – well, lady, keep your cat in the house where it would be safe – its OK for her cat to roam but not the dogs – this miserable hunk of human trash needs those damn guns shoved so far up her ass she chokes on them.
