A woman in Hershey, Pennsylvania, is accused of stealing someone’s dog and then setting the dog on fire. According to multiple sources, police discovered the burning remains of the dog at the home of 25-year-old Kathryn Grecia, who was known to the dog’s owner.
The victimized dog was a one-year-old poodle mix named Bambi. The dog was taken from her home in Hummelstown, and her owner, who has not been named, alerted the authorities that Grecia was believed to be responsible.
Three days after Bambi was reported stolen, police found her burning body at Grecia’s home – the remains were sent away for DNA testing by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.
As reported by PennLive, Grecia is facing multiple charges for the cruel incident, including aggravated cruelty to animals, tampering with evidence and theft. She was arrested on February 14 and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on February 26.
