A Vancouver dog walker, who first reported six dogs had been stolen from her vehicle but then said that the dogs died of heat exhaustion, pleaded guilty to two charges — animal cruelty and mischief.

Emma Paulsen was charged with six counts before admitting that she lied about what happened in May when Paulsen left the animals in her truck at a Langley dog park.

The dogs died of heat exhaustion. Paulsen originally said she left her vehicle to use the washroom at a Langley dog park, and when she returned the dogs were gone.

The maximum sentence for animal cruelty cases is two years.

Paulsen will be sentenced on January 21, 2015.
