A woman has been arrested for allegedly trying to seriously harm a neighbor’s dog.
Auburn Police investigated an incident between neighbors concerning a barking dog on Tuesday. According to an investigation conducted by Officer Stan Hamelin, 45-year-old Tanya Meeth had an argument with her neighbor over a dog which was barking excessively.
Meeth then allegedly left what was called a “dangerous item” baited with food on the neighbor’s property with the intent for the dog to eat it. If the dog had eaten the item, serious injury or death would have occurred.
Hamelin arrested Meeth and booked her into the Placer County Jail for an attempted cruelty to animals. Meeth was released from jail on a $10,000 bond on Wednesday.
