An Oregon woman was arrested after police say she killed her pet Chihuahua by cooking it alive in an oven.
Noelle Georgia Moor, 28, told police she placed the pet inside her stove because she believed her ex-boyfriend was inside the animal, court records show.
Moor faces first-degree animal abuse charges in the 7-year-old dog’s death, according to a police report.
The responding officer wrote that they found the dog “deceased on the burner of the oven,” which had been turned off by the time the officer arrived.

“The smell of burnt hair and flesh was still in the air,” the officer wrote in a report.
The dog was taken to Clatsop County Animal Control for further investigation.
Moor was moved from Clatsop Behavioral Healthcare to Clatsop County Jail Tuesday.
A woman claiming to be Moor’s sister said she struggles with schizophrenia in a comment on The Daily Astorian.
