A woman is in trouble with the law after she attempted to mail a small dog to Atlanta in a sealed box. She told the post office there was a toy robot in the box and to ignore any noise heard coming from the box.

The 39 year old Minneapolis woman was sited for misdemeanor animal cruelty charges and the dog was taken to the city animal shelter.
