PERHAM, Maine (AP) - A northern Maine woman is facing animal cruelty charges after police say she stabbed the family dog while high on drugs because she thought it was possessed by demons.

The Aroostook County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to a Perham home on Sunday and found 30-year-old Ashley Doody acting aggressively and exhibiting unpredictable behavior. Police believe she was high on the drug known as bath salts.

Sheriff Darrell Crandall says Doody used a kitchen knife to stab the dog. The sheriff says the dog lost a lot of blood but was taken to a veterinarian and is expected to survive.

Doody was arrested and remains in jail on $1,000 cash bail.

It’s not clear if she has a lawyer.
