BOULDER, Colo. — Police say a Colorado woman wrapped her boyfriend’s dog in packing tape and stuck the animal upside down to a refrigerator because he wouldn’t get rid of it.


Twenty-year-old Abby Toll was arrested Tuesday after police say she got into a fight with her boyfriend.


She was charged with felony cruelty, drug possession and other counts and is free on $12,500 bond, while her 21-year-old boyfriend, Bryan Beck, faces lesser charges including a misdemeanour cruelty count.


Police say Toll used packing tape to bind the legs, snout and tail of Beck’s dog, Rex, a Japanese breed called a Shiba Inu.


She told police she stuck the dog to the refrigerator because she was angry Beck wanted to keep it.

Rex was taken to a shelter and will be put up for adoption.
