A Minneapolis dog “rescuer” has been sentenced for stomping on, and drowning, another woman’s dog. According to KSTP News, Elizabeth Osterbauer, who founded the Close to Home Canine Rescue, has been sentenced to 180 days in the Hennepin County Workhouse, and three years of supervised probation for the crime.
Unrequited love is believed to be the twisted reason for the death of Shelly Byzewski’s small dog, Ducky. In 2016, Osterbauer broke into Byzewski’s house and took the three-year-old miniature Pinscher. Witnesses have stated that Osterbauer drove to a wildlife area and stomped on Ducky before drowning him in a marsh.
Osterbauer allegedly had feelings for Byzewski – feelings which were not reciprocated.
