Twisted dog owner, 47, paid for rods to be shoved down huskies' throat to stop them barking
A VILE pet owner paid for rods to be shoved into her pet dogs’ vocal cords to stop them barking.
Anne Beiler, 47, hired vet Denise Felling to do the job because she was sick of the noise made by her two huskies.
The illegal procedure was performed in a filthy outbuilding at Beiler’s home in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Beiler’s two Doberman pinschers were also “debarked” by someone else.
The cruelty was uncovered after the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals workers seized 15 dogs from Beiler’s farm in May 2018.
They had been alerted by someone concerned for their welfare.
A further nine puppies were found to have had their tails improperly docked, with rubber bands wrapped tightly around them.
Beiler pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges and was sentenced to two years’ probation. She was ordered to surrender all of the dogs she owns bar one.
She was also banned from working with or looking after dogs during the duration of her probation.
Meanwhile Felling admitted four counts of debarking dogs – Beiler’s husky, as well as three others on neighbouring homes, Lancaster Online reported.
She was sentenced to 23 months’ jail, but immediately released because of the time she had spent behind bars awaiting trial.
