(Blue Earth, MN) – A 33-year-old man from Blue Earth man will spend about another week in jail for killing his dog.
Timothy Glanzman was sentenced Thursday to 18 days in jail, with credit for the 10 days he already sat. Glanzman will serve the jail time next month.
He was also sentenced to two years probation and 40 hours of community service.
It was November 15th when the Faribault County Sheriff’s Office was alerted by a person who reported seeing Glanzman jump out of a pickup and dump an injured dog onto a bridge near Catholic Church Road.
The witness rushed to the bullet-riddled dog and brought it to the All Pets Medicine clinic in Mapleton, but the dog died that night. X-rays showed that it had sustained seven gunshot wounds.
The deputy investigating the case went to the area where the dog was dumped and saw blood and fecal matter spattered over the roadway. The deputy then contacted Glanzman, who admitted that his German Shepherd Hilda was gone, but denied shooting it.
He was subsequently charged with a felony count of Animal Torture-Death of a Pet, to which he pleaded guilty last month.
