A Florida woman admitted to drowning her dog in the bathtub because the animal was barking too much, a report said.
Margaret Kinsella, 43, allegedly killed her Labrador Retriever on Nov. 5 while workers were repairing her air conditioning unit, according to USA Today, citing court documents.
One of the repair men, Wilfredo Asia, heard screaming in the bathroom and asked Kinsella if she needed assistance, according to the affidavit.
The woman refused, but when the screaming grew louder, the worker opened the door and saw the dead animal floating in the bathtub.
Kinsella was arrested on Dec. 17 when an autopsy determined the dog’s cause of death and hit with a felony animal cruelty charge.
