A now-former Georgia kennel owner has been sentenced to five years probation for cutting the tails off at least eight puppies, one of which died. Leslie Ayo pleaded guilty Monday to five counts of animal cruelty and one count of practicing veterinary medicine without a license. In addition to probation, she was sentenced to pay a $3,500 fine, perform 240 hours of community service, surrender all kennel-related licenses and have no contact with animals.

Ayo was operating Heaven’s Gate Kennels when, in November 2013, a Lawrenceville family hired her to dock the tails and remove the dewclaws of their eight Rottweiler puppies, officials said. Ayo reportedly charged $150 for the service and used scissors to perform the procedures. All of this was done without anesthesia or pain medication.
