75-year-old woman charged with clubbing a fawn to death

EUCLID, Ohio (AP) — A 75-year-old Ohio woman accused of clubbing a fawn to death with a shovel has pleaded not guilty to animal abuse charges.

Dorothy Richardson did not speak during Thursday’s arraignment in the Cleveland suburb of Euclid. Her attorney entered the not guilty pleas to two misdemeanor counts of animal abuse. If Richardson is convicted, she could face at least 90 days in jail.

She has told Cleveland media she was afraid when she saw the baby deer in her garden on June 15 and used a shovel to try to shoo it away. She said after it died she placed it in a box that she put out with the trash.

Richardson’s court appearance drew a crowd that included people from her church there to offer support, as well as animal rights activists.

Meanwhile crack cocaine sales in Euclid are at an all time high and continue on with no fear of prosecution.

Why is this woman getting support? She doesn't deserve any. She beat this harmless fawn to death and threw the body in the trash, she wasn't afraid she was angry because it was in her garden. I would like her to serve at least 90 days in jail to see what it really is to be terrified in the presence of animals.
