An Eagle Point woman who let three dogs die in a hot car in Chiloquin has been sentenced to 15 days in jail, and a year and a half of probation.

67-year-old Alice Taylor pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of first degree animal abuse.

Taylor was arrested in June of 2014 after her three Rottweilers died after being left in her locked truck outside of a Chiloquin restaurant.

As part of a negotiated agreement, Taylor will not be allowed to own any domestic animals for 5 years.


 

Klamath Falls, Ore. — An Eagle Point woman accused of leaving three dogs in a hot car until they died appeared in Klamath County Court Wednesday morning.

In June of 2014, 67-year-old Alice Taylor was charged with multiple counts of first-degree animal abuse. Police say three dogs were found dead in her car, which was parked outside a Chiloquin restaurant for 4 hours on a hot day.

Taylor’s lawyer argued in court Wednesday that Taylor was not fit to proceed, and was granted a delay until a mental evaluation can be completed. A jury trial has been scheduled to begin Wednesday.
