SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Salt Lake City police say a woman who killed her dog with a can of Raid bug spray has been jailed on suspicion of animal cruelty.

Authorities say they responded to South Emery Street a little after noon on Saturday and found that the 43-year-old woman had killed the dog.

Police say they suspected the woman was having a mental health crisis, and called the Mobile Crisis Outreach Team to evaluate her condition.

The woman was later booked into jail.
