Colorado co-ed tapes puppy to refrigerator because boyfriend wouldn't get rid of it

April 15th, 2009 12:00 am by Staff Report

According to a report by the Smoking Gun University of Colorado student Abby Toll, 20, is facing a felony animal abuse charge after she allegedly taped her boyfriend's puppy to the side of a refrigerator  to teach the rambunctious animal a "lesson."

According to police, Toll used clear packing tape to adhere the eight-month-old Shiba Inu named Rex to the refrigerator  in the kitchen of her boyfriend's apartment.

She was reportedly angry with Bryan Beck, 21, for failing to get rid of the puppy, which, Toll told police, bit her a few days ago.

According to Boulder Police Department reports, when officers responded at 5 am  "report of a male and female yelling" at Beck's apartment, they discovered that "Rex's body was completely encased in packing tape."

When Officer Kara Jurczenia asked what was on the side of the fridge, Toll replied, "The dog." Toll added, "I know this looks really bad, but the dog bites. He is aggressive."

The animal, whose paws had been bound with elastic hair ties, was clearly in pain and "yelped and screamed loudly" as cops worked to free him.
