- New York, USA -
On Thursday, March 18, State Police in Fulton arrested 26-year-old NICOLE MARIE HOLLAND with one count of animal cruelty.
Police say HOLLAND allowed her 6-week-old miniature Doberman Pinscher named Champ to ingest heroin from a plate containing the substance.
CNY Central reports that HOLLAND told troopers she put a pink plate on the floor with heroin in it.
HOLLAND saw Champ lick the substance off the plate and later she snorted the rest through a straw.
HOLLAND said that Champ started walking funny, breathing shallowly, and his stomach was bloated.
She then pushed on Champ’s belly causing him to throw up and according to HOLLAND, Champ started breathing again.
HOLLAND claimed she planned to take the furbaby to the vet the following day but Champ sadly died.
According to HOLLAND, she did not inject Champ with heroin and was not trying to hurt him.
Big Frog 104 reports that a necropsy was performed on Champ, and results revealed that the cause of death was the result of opioid intoxication.
Champ weighed approximately 800 grams.
While Champ was not going through this horrible ordeal, HOLLAND took a video which was then posted on social media.
State Police and the Oswego County SPCA began to investigate after they learned about the footage.
Police are not sharing the video because it is disturbing.
This trashy female was only charged with animal cruelty.
While she admitted to drug possession and drug use, State Police said they could not charge her for either because it was not witnessed.
HOLLAND was issued an appearance ticket and is scheduled to appear in the Hannibal Town Court on April 6, 2021, at 6:00 p.m.
