Alaska woman sentenced for letting her pregnant dog suffer
A woman accused of letting her pregnant dog suffer after being hit by a car was sentenced Thursday.
According to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, 49-year-old April Gutierrez will not be allowed around any animals without supervision following the incident two years ago.
Charging documents say Gutierrez’ dog was hit by a car and she did not seek help until it began to chew off its left hind foot.
There were maggots on the injured leg and bones and tendons were exposed, said veterinarian staff.
The dog ended up losing her puppies and leg, but, according to the report, she was adopted into a new family and is doing much better.
Gutierrez faces one-year probation and one year suspended time.
