The woman told police that’s what people do in the country to train dogs not to kill chickens, the mayor said.
The woman, who has not been identified, was cited for criminal animal cruelty, which is punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000, the newspaper reported.
The incident set off a lengthy Facebook discussion after Columbus resident Hannah Gillespie posted pictures of the dog with what appears to be a dead chicken duct taped to its neck, the newspaper reported.
Tomlinson responded to the Facebook discussion after she was tagged in the comments.
