Police say Boyd showed no remorse while admitting to her crime.
We've said it before, and we'll say it again: You just can't go around throwing animals at things every time they piss you off. That goes double for tiny puppies.

Holly Boyd, a 28-year-old Fridley woman, allegedly got so mad at her few-weeks-old Chihuahua for urinating on her stuff that she pitched it across the room and killed it.

Boyd's now facing felony animal cruelty charges in Anoka County that could carry up to two years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

The drama began last Thursday with a fight between Boyd and her boyfriend, Phillip Archambault, according to the criminal complaint. Fridley Police arrived to break up the fight, and advised Archambault to step out of the apartment and cool off.

After he left, Boyd allegedly decided to take her lingering anger out on the couple's new Chihuahua puppy, which they had just picked up the night before.

Boyd could go to prison for up to two years.
Only 45 minutes after leaving, Archambault received an ominous text message from his girlfriend, according to the complaint: "The dogs killed it also broke its neck I think."

Archambault rushed back to a grisly sight. The dog was lying on its bed, completely lifeless. Blood dripped from its ear. The puppy's skull was broken in several places, and its bowels protruded from its stomach.

Archambault called 911.

When the police returned, Boyd originally tried to convince them that it wasn't her fault. The dog had accidentally stumbled into the coffee table, she told them, according to the complaint.

But she later admitted that the dog peed on her leg and couch, so she threw it into a nearby dresser.

Police say she "showed no remorse" as she explained how the puppy hit the dresser handle and went limp, and even threatened to sue police for arresting her, according to the complaint.

Boyd was arrested and booked in Anoka County jail. She's since been released, and is due back in court April 21.

It's a *ing chihuahua and one less belligerent and backyard bred mistake is doing the world a great favor. Quite frankly, they need to annihilate all toy and small breeds, they're nothing more than irritants to people and other large dogs. The death of this rodent is a welcome relief.

personally all humans have the capacity for violence......it is the difference between those who control themselves and do not hurt animals or others (unless you are hurting an animal or innocent thers) then you should get your head cracked open!...........NO EXCUSE FOR ANYONE TO EVER HURT AN ANIMAL!....EVER...........AND THEN YOU SHOUOLD NOT HURT PEOPLE ..BUT IF SOMEONE IS HURTING AN ANIMAL OR CHILD OR SOMEONE WHO CAN NOT DEFEND THEMSELVES THEN SOMEONE SHOULD STOP IT IN WHAT EVER WAY IS NECESSARY..THE LAW IS A JOKE THEY DO NOTHING.........ANYONE WHO WOULD DO THIS TO AN ANIMAL  SHOULD HAVE AN AXE TO THE HEAD.AND BE GOTTEN THE HELL OFF THIS PLANET WE DO NOT NEED OR WANT ANIMAL ABUSERS OR KILLERS HERE!.............

I didn't know she killed it, I just read that it was injured. Please leave me 20 minutes alone with her. Oh, and Kirk, I'd give you a good kick in the ribs on a daily basis if I knew you. THE SIGNS OF TRAUMA THE DOG EXHIBITED WERE SIGNS OF BEING SQUEEZED TO DEATH. Anyone who knows their rearend from a hole in the ground can tell that. Wow.

She needs to pay for her crime with the max that she can get. She is a heartless person and needs to be punished. It needs to be shown things like this will not be tolerated for any reason.

Police say she showed no remorse...well, from her point of view, why should she? To her, the dog was just another posession. So if the dog/posession damaged other, more valuable posessions, there was nothing wrong with punishing as violently as she wanted. After all, he was just a 'thing'.

Since i can't fling her against the well as she did the pup, perhaps just whacking her in the head with a concrete block untill her bowels protrude would be punishment enough.....nah...just another idiot that doesn't deserve humane treatment.

Just think - she'll be the mother of children someday. Can you imagine how "frustrating" she'll find THAT, if THIS can cause her to act so brutally??

Justice is blind, some say. However, people who are honest, naive, or outright stupid , become criminals under this justice system. If she was clever, she would have carefully removed the dead puppy and thrown it out some distant place perhaps at night when no one looking, kept silent for a while then reported the puppy missing. Now the outcome of this case much depends upon how much money she can afford to fight it out in the court. Justice more than blind is corrupt.

If she was "clever" she would have carefully removed the tiny little living puppy out of her sick psycho place of residence and gave it to the local animal shelter. People who show no remorse for their actions are considered sociopaths. I highly recommend she gets a hysterectomy while in jail so she doesn't do this to her offspring.

Two things I just realized: 1) Stories about animal abuse totally bring the cretins out of the woodwork. 2) I just "got" Kirk. He's actually doing brilliant dadaist steam-of-consciousness satire. (Or is he really just a mentally ill uber-troll? Dang. Now I'm back where I started.)

I'm getting her a full grown pit bull for Christmas. Can't wait to see how well throwing it around will go for Holly. Sidenote: This ho is way too fat to have a name as cute as Holly.

Kill , slaughter other animals in thousands every day to eat their flesh and wear their skins (leather) it is not an animal cruelty but inadvertently kill an pets (like dogs) by accident, and you will be sent to prions for long years on the charges of animal cruelty? HYPOCRITES.

You are so lucky you live in this century, babe because you would parish in the days when you had to supply for yourself and didn't have everything served to you on a pretty little vegan platter.

No animal deserves abuse. She deserves everything the judge wants to throw at her. as a chihuahua owner i feel like throwing her across the room. but a couple weeks old pup? enraged. time to go kiss my chichi's.

As a Chihuahua owner I understand how frail these little guys can be. My little guy got under my feet when he was a pup and i backed up and snapped his leg. I was absolutely heartbroken and it was an accident. For this woman to have no remorse when she did this from a complete loss of self control..... she is a sad person with problems that go way beyond that of being a bad pet owner.

Her ass needs to be thrown up against a wall. I don't believe in striking women. But this Catch U Next Tuesday isn't even human. A curb-stomp is in order.

Of course all those other animals that are killed so we can eat, are done so with love and care... no deadly blows to the head with blunt objects - ever.... They are petted to death by softest hands. Not saying that I agree with what she has done, we all do stupid things when in rage or under other emotional influence, but, felony!!!??? WTF.

As long as we humans consume flesh of any kind, any moral judgment of others killing animals is vane, wake up and look at yourself in the mirror, now, take a stone, dont throw it at the mirror, bash it into your own skull. And those vegans amongst us, yah, your pious ways wont get you out of the grip of sin, guess how many life forms you kill just by claping your hands together, or... khm by the process of your breathing, or simply being alive.... all them bacteria, we kill them without even realizing that we do or putting much thought to it...

You are connecting parallel dots. Killing animals bred for consumption is a completely seperate issue from some psycho line driving a baby chihuahua into a wall, spilling it's bowels everywhere.

Take your PETA propaganda elsewhere. Grow up.

Sorry for the reply post which I meant to send to Riley but accidentally sent to you.

Jadedaway

Sorry Texeiravalerian, but it seems I cannot reply to Riley and I just have to say this- As a vegan I can honestly say I have never needed to take any supplement to my diet to be healthy and have an incredibly hard time not getting TOO MUCH protein. Know what the hell you are talking about before you run your mouth please. (newsflash, while plants are living things people dont subject them to filthy living conditions that cause depression and self mutilation, also eating plants does not waste grains that could otherwise be feed to other people, the ones starving to death here in America or other countries. Factory farms produce approx 33% of ozone depleating methane, speeding up global warming. Another interesting fact, plants cant reason, nor do they have the skills to use tools (fish) play video games or solve math problems (cows, pigs, chickens).Cows and pigs have the intelligence level of 3 year old humans and, just like humans, with out their parents or normal social interaction they are under developed mentally, and depressed. Meat is cruel and sick and if humans cant take care of the creatures "lower" then us it speaks volumes of our character. I for one will take no part in it.

You justify killing animals when it suits your interest in the name of “food chain” . You want people to enjoy the carnal pleasure of eating their flesh perhaps you don’t even imagine if all such animal killing and eating its considered as a serious crime and punished under the law. I am totally against animal cruelty but in my opinion when a person inadvertently kills a pet by accident that should not be considered as animal cruelty.

Riley
Riley

You have every right to decide whether or not you want to eat animals, that is your choice. But the food chain exists for a reason and heck, maybe someday there will be something bigger and badder than humans to come and feed off of us. We eat animals to stay alive, just like they eat each other. It's called the food chain. As for the bacteria? Uh, yeah...we kill them because it can make us incredibly sick, and possibly even kill us in some cases. Of course we try and get rid bacteria.

She wasn't defending herself from a vicious and hostile puppy. She got mad and instead of rationalizing like a humane person would do, she took her rage out on a defenseless animal and murdered it without a care in the world. So yeah, that monster deserves a felony charge and I wish she had gotten more time in prison.

I am totally against animal cruelty but in my opinion when a person inadvertently kills a pet by accident (not intended to mean cruelty and kill it) that should not be considered as animal cruelty of that magnitude.

When you have to take supplement after supplement to maintain your "kill free" lifestyle, it's not natural.

Newsflash: PLANTS ARE LIVING THINGS!

Yes Felony.. this was done with no remorse.. not a care in the world.. that is the start of psycho / serial killer.

There is a difference between killing to live and killing just cause you were mad.
