Florida woman accused of fatally shooting fiance’s dog after he reportedly refused to crack her back

TARPON SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a Florida woman fatally shot her and her fiance’s dog during an argument.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that 27-year-old Giselle Taylor was arrested last week and charged with animal cruelty.

Tarpon Springs police say Taylor got angry at her fiance because he wouldn’t crack her back. An arrest report says she grabbed a 9mm handgun from the garage and loaded it.

The report says Taylor told officers she intended to scare her fiance, but when she didn’t get the response she wanted, she pointed the gun at their 2-year-old boxer and pulled the trigger. The bullet hit the dog’s upper torso, killing it.

Police say Taylor left the house but was arrested a short time later.

Taylor is free on $5,000 bail. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
