According to the Advocate, a Jefferson Parish veterinarian was arrested and is accused of shooting a neighbor's dog in the head and killing it after she complained of the dog's incessant barking.

The suspect, 35-year old Kelly Folse, is accused of shooting the 15-month old American Bulldog, Bruiser, on December 13th.

The Advocate reports that the dog was rushed to the Abadie Veterinarian Hospital in Harahan, the same office where Folse worked, but the team there was unable to save the animal. 

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, in a press conference on Tuesday, said that Folse had been booked on charges of aggravated cruelty to an animal, illegal discharge of a weapon, and two drug offenses. The drug charges arose from two prescription narcotics, diazepam and adderall, found in Folse's home.

An investigation of the incident by the JPSO found that the dog was fenced-in in its owner's yard at the time of the incident and that Folse had allegedly made prior threats toward the dog because she thought it barked too much and was aggressive. Interviews conducted by investigators with neighbors revealed no evidence that the dog was aggressive.

The gun allegedly used to shoot Bruiser has not been recovered. Bullet fragments were found in the dog's body.

The JPSO says that Folse was fired from her position at the veterinary clinic.
