DULUTH, Ga. -- After only one day on the job, a Decatur woman was fired from an animal clinic and arrested for stealing pain killers that were meant to be given to people's pets. Police said her actions could have seriously harmed cats and dogs.
Tifani Collins, 25, is charged with Aggravated Cruelty to Animals, Theft by Taking and Possession of a Dangerous Drug. She was hired to work in the surgery room at Planned Pethood in Duluth. On her first day on the job an alert employee suspected her of tampering with pain killer medication given to animals after they are spayed or neutered.
