A Colorado woman pleaded guilty to allegations of animal abuse related to trying to poison her neighbor dog with ground chicken soaked in antifreeze due to a & # 39; bark problem & # 39 ;.
Margaret Werker, 73 years old, was captured with a security camera in an attempt to throw the infected meat over a fence at the beginning of April at the dog, Wrigley, in Colorado Springs.
Fortunately the meat got stuck in the fence and Wrigley could not reach it.
& # 39; There were some concerns about some complaints about a barking dog in that area, & # 39; told Lindsey Vigna, the assistant director for law enforcement. KKTV. & # 39; We never really knew who it came from. But we believe it comes from there, a barking problem. & # 39;
Video provided by the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region shows a woman approaching the fence that separates her garden from her neighbor's garden and tries to throw something over the barrier.
The dog, Wrigley, can be seen walking towards the fence, sniffing around the floor when the item gets stuck and lingers at the top of the fence.
After seeing it unfold, the neighbor called the police and reported that Werker seemed to be poisoning the dog.
After the meat was tested, it appeared that it was contaminated with antifreeze.

& # 39; Poisoning cases can be very difficult to investigate and sue because there is usually very little evidence that a suspect links to the crime, & # 39; said human society in a release about the incident.
& # 39; In this case, however, the victim had evidence. He had obtained a video from his neighbor who threw a substance in his back yard, who later tested positive for toxic material. & # 39;
