A woman was arrested in Norwalk, Conn. Wednesday for breaking into a pet store and trying to “set the puppies free,” local police said.
Local newspaper The Hour reports that Anouk Govil, 23, attempted the break-in at Puppies of Westport early Wednesday morning by smashing the door in with a rock.
The University of Connecticut student was wearing a puppy-print pajama shirt when she was caught by an officer patrolling the area.
When the officer questioned her, she admitted she was trying to free the young canines.
Govil was charged with third-degree criminal mischief and will appear in court on Jan. 21.
