A woman was seen laughing in a police mugshot after she brutally killed her dog because it misbehaved.

The woman in Florida was accused of fatally shooting her puppy that she said was behaving badly.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office arrested 27-year-old Amanda Cay Carpenter on charges of animal cruelty and shooting a gun in public.

Carpenter told investigators that the 9-month-old pitbull chewed and damaged several items in her room at her Pensacola mobile home.

She then tried to put the dog in a kennel but it would not go. Carpenter claimed that when she grabbed the dog, it tried to bite her face.

At that point, she decided to kill the animal. Carpenter took the dog outside and fired at it several times.

A neighbor called the police and reported hearing 2 shots being fired and a dog crying before hearing the 3rd gunshot after which the dog went silent.

The dog was rushed to an animal hospital, where it died.

Carpenter was arrested and is being held on $20,000 bail.
