Frankfort woman pleads guilty to dumping puppy;

The woman who abandoned a 5-week-old puppy in March pleaded guilty Tuesday in Franklin District Court.

Stephanie Cooper, who was accused of leaving a 5-week-old female Chihuahua near the Kentucky River on March 19, pleaded guilty to second-degree animal cruelty.

Frankfort Sewer Department employees discovered the puppy on Kentucky Avenue and described the suspect as a 5-foot-2-inch to 5-foot-6-inch white female with blonde hair and slender build.

She was driving a silver Chevrolet SUV.

Employees said the woman got out of the vehicle carrying a box, which she left on the bank of the Kentucky River.

When employees retrieved the box, they found the female Chihuahua puppy inside.

A veterinary examination determined the puppy most likely would have died if left in the box.

The Franklin County Humane Society took in the puppy, and has placed it in a foster care home.

Cooper is not allowed to possess any dogs for six months, has to pay court costs of $184 and must complete 200 hours of community service with the Humane Society.

“When you come back, I expect you to have been compliant,” Franklin District Judge Kathy Mangeot said. “Hopefully all those hours will have been completed.”

Cooper is scheduled to return to court March 4.
