Authorities say a Florida woman sprayed her neighbor’s two dogs with ant killer. Carol Watt, 75, was arrested Friday and charged with misdemeanor cruelty to animals, Treasure Coast Newspaper reported.
The neighbor told Indian River County deputies that she had just let her dogs out in her fenced-in backyard when she heard barking. The dog owner told deputies they saw Watt spraying the dogs’ faces with a yellow canister. Watt said she was spraying ant killer on her hanging plants and did not intentionally spray the dogs. Neighbors said they have previously seen Watt stand by the fence and antagonize the dogs. It wasn’t known if the dogs were injured. Watt is free on $1,000 bail.
