Ruth Robinson was in tears outside the Kamloops, B.C., court and expressed her disappointment at the judge's ruling.
Robinson, who owns a ranch in Sharpe Lake, in B.C.'s south Cariboo, admitted at her trial that she shot the large dog with a rifle.
She testified that she believed she was justified under the Livestock Act because the 55-kilogram Leonberger dog was chasing her cattle.
Provincial court Judge Chris Cleaveley found Robinson guilty of killing or injuring an animal under the Criminal Code.
The Crown has called for a jail sentence of up to 90 days, but the judge, who reserved his sentencing decision, indicated he won't impose a jail term. (CHNL)
