Oregon man who put dog in oven gets 30 days, probation

SALEM, Ore. — A 20-year-old Oregon man who pleaded guilty to putting his grandmother’s small Chihuahua-mix dog in a 350-degree oven because it nipped him has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and five years of probation.

Kevin Dean Parrish of Lyons, southeast of Salem, pleaded guilty Wednesday to aggravated animal abuse, a felony, and misdemeanor animal abuse. With credit for time served, the Marion County sheriff’s office says Parrish is due to be released Feb. 16.

Judge Audrey Broyles also placed restrictions on Parrish owning or being in contact with animals during his probation.

A sheriff’s spokesman said he had no update on the 9-pound dog named Kudo, which suffered cuts, bruises, three burned legs and singed hair on Jan. 18 but was expected to survive.

Parrish told deputies he pulled the dog out of the oven after several minutes when he heard his brother approach.
