In Grand Island, Nebraska, a Florida woman was sentenced onThursday to probation for drowning a puppy at the airport because she wasn’t allowed to board the plane with the animal, reports FoxNews.
Cynthia Anderson, 56, had been arrested on January 23 at the Central Nebraska Regional Airport after she tried to board a plane with three puppies. It had been reported her parents took two of the puppies, and the next day Anderson returned for her flight and tried to hide the remaining puppy, a three-week-old Doberman pinscher puppy in a carry-on bag, and board the plane. When she was denied boarding again because the puppy was too young and improperly being carried onto the aircraft, Anderson was later seen by a witness entering the bathroom; the dead body of a puppy was found in the toilet.
Anderson pleaded no contest in Hall County District Court, apologized for drowning the puppy and asked for mercy from the court by placing her on probation. Anderson also cannot own or be around animals for five years.
Rest in peace little puppy. No one gave you mercy. Read the original story here.
