An Indiana woman faces a felony animal cruelty charge after authorities allege she tried to neuter her own dog. Kimberly Oldham, 62, from Portage, was arrested on Sunday after using dental floss tied around the dog’s testicles because she was unable to afford the procedure at a veterinarian’s office.
According to the NwiTimes, Oldham decided to castrate her three-year-old terrier-chihuahua after receiving complaints from her neighbors about the dog. She told police someone advised her to secure the dog’s testicles with an elastic band, and they would fall off if done correctly.
The following morning Oldham found her dog in excruciating pain; it had been chewing on where his testicles had been and was bleeding out. The owner was truly upset about her dog’s condition, and explained to police she never meant to harm her dog – she just didn’t have the money to get him neutered at a vet.
The dog was rushed to an emergency veterinarian and underwent surgery to correct the botched job. The dog is recuperating and will be made available for adoption.
