Earlier this month, an Oregon woman allegedly cooked her pet Chihuahua to death in an oven because she thought her ex-boyfriend was INSIDE the animal.
According to Clatsop County Jail records, Noelle Georgia Moor (above) has been charged with first-degree animal abuse for the alleged incident.
Clatsop County District Attorney Joshua Marquis told People that on March 19, authorities arrived at the 28-year-old’s residence at least twice over a dispute. When they entered the property, they “realized something was very wrong,” and eventually found the poor dog in the oven.
Court records obtained by The Oregonian say Moor, who was detained at Columbia Memorial Hospital, believed a former flame was actually inside the canine.
Although Marquis is awaiting the results of her mental health investigation, “it’s likely going to be handled as a criminal case,” adding:
“A lot of people who do very bizarre things also have mental health issues.”
The suspect is currently at the Clatsop County Jail, and will appear in court on Tuesday.
