WTF 💔💔💔😡A Louisiana veterinarian has been arrested after she shot and killed a neighbor's dog because she said it barked too much and was aggressive.
#KellyFolse, 35, was booked for aggravated cruelty to animals, illegal discharge of a firearm, and possession of Schedule II and IV drugs.
According to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, officers responded to a veterinary hospital on Dec. 13 after receiving a report of a dog that had been shot in the head. The 15-month old American bull dog named 'Bruiser' was severely injured and eventually died on Dec. 14.
The investigation quickly centered on the next-door neighbor of the family that owned the dog. The sheriff's office said that Folse made numerous prior threats towards the dog because she thought he barked too much and she alleged he was aggressive. Investigators said they did not find any evidence that the dog had been aggressive. "This is crazy," Sheriff Lopinto said. "I don't know what world we are living on where this is OK. Whether this is you, me or anybody else, for a vet. I mean, give me a break people." "We can all complain about someone's barking dog, but this is over the top," he continued.
During a search of Folse's home, deputies found two different types of narcotics, one of which they believe Folse obtained through a prescription for her pets.
Deputies said Folse worked at the veterinary hospital that treated Bruiser, but said that she was not involved in his care. Lopinto said there are no other complaints against Folse of animal cruelty at this time; however, the investigation is ongoing.
Lopinto said that Folse worked at the Abadie Veterinary Hospital at the time of her arrest. "This is not what veterinarians do," Lopinto said." Credit @michsygold
