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.
