Woman kills her five dogs

April 25, 2007

Moultrie - - A Moultrie woman bonded out of jail after she admitted she killed her three puppies and the puppies' parents. 

Moultrie police arrested 40 year old Deborah Spivey on five counts of cruelty to animals. Spivey's fiance called police to tell them she had attempted a suicide.

When officers arrived at their home, they found Spivey with a slit wrist. As paramedics prepared to take her to the hospital, her fiance asked where their five Chihuahuas were. 

"{She} told us where they were, we went out and looked for them. We couldn't find them. Before she was taken to the hospital by EMS, she was actually able to take us out to the location where she had put them and we found them there," says officer Dave Underwood.

The dogs were inside plastic bags in a barn behind the home. When police asked her what happened, she admitted she choked and smothered them to death.  Officers say Spivey did not appear remorseful.
