Kara Probin is River's dog-mum. She decided to set up the hidden camera after her cupcakes kept disappearing.

At first, Kara suspected her other pup, Winnie. Speaking to the Daily Mail,  Probin said:

 “I was shocked when I checked the camera and I saw it was River, I thought it was our other pointer Winnie, as she is the greedy one."

Staying out of the doghouse

River is currently working on her defence. And despite the mountain of evidence against her, we think she could beat the case.

Firstly, River was hungry. But more importantly, she's super cute.
