RENO, Nev. (AP) - A Nevada woman has been sentenced to five days
in jail for hitting a dog with her SUV in what the dog's owner says
was an intentional act.
Chris McLenahan of Spanish Springs also was ordered to perform 48 hours of community service, pay a $300 fine and reimburse the dog's owner for a $1,200 vet bill.
Sparks Justice of the Peace Kevin Higgins sentenced McLenahan on
Thursday after having found her guilty last month of a misdemeanor
charge of animal cruelty.
McLenahan insisted it was an accident. But the dog's owner, Denise Bonnet, says the woman intentionally ran over the dog after she accused Bonnet and a friend of trespassing on her property while riding horses last August.
