MCMINNVILLE, Ore. (AP) - A woman who fatally shot two of her neighbors' dogs after they wandered onto her rural McMinnville property has been sentenced to two days in jail.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reports 44-year-old Nicole Erica Wood was also sentenced Monday to 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 in 2016.
The dogs, a boxer and a German short-haired pointer, belonged to two families who lived about three-quarters of a mile away from Wood.
Wood told police she thought the dogs had killed her cat a few months earlier and were a neighborhood menace. Investigators say she warned one of the dog's owners that if the dogs stepped on her property again, she'd kill them.
She was found guilty of two counts of animal abuse.
