Woman Sentenced To Animal Abuse Counseling, Community Labor For Taping Cat’s Paws

SAN FERNANDO (AP) — A Southern California woman has been ordered to undergo animal abuse counseling and perform community labor for mistreating a cat found with its paws taped together.

Los Angeles County prosecutors say Kylie Stringer was also ordered Wednesday to comply with a ban on having direct access to animals for five years and attend drug rehab.

The 26-year-old pleaded no contest in January to one misdemeanor count each of cruelty to an animal and possession of a controlled substance.

Co-defendant Tyler Scott Vest is set to be sentenced April 5.

The pair was arrested after deputies found heroin in their vehicle. The deputy also found a cat carrier containing a feline with paws bound together with electrical tape.

Animal Control officers took possession of the cat.
