FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California woman has been sentenced to three years of felony probation for brutally beating a puppy last year.

The Fresno Bee reports 39-year-old Janice Aguilar was also banned from owning pets during her probation.

She was convicted Tuesday in Madera County Superior Court of felony animal cruelty stemming from the Aug. 29 incident.

Prosecutors said the Oakhurst woman beat the dog, put the injured animal into her backpack and walked away instead of seeking treatment from a veterinarian.

Aguilar told deputies that the dog was attacked by a pit bull.

The dog, believed to be a Lab mix between 8 and 11 weeks old, was put down by a witness who saw the severe pain it was in and thought it was beyond help.
