What’s wrong with people? This. From The Grand Island (Nebraska) Independent:
Grand Island police Sgt. Stan Steele said it appeared the woman may have drowned the two-week-old Doberman puppy after she was denied access to a flight because of the dog’s young age and lack of being properly contained.
Cynthia V. Anderson, 56, of Edgewater, Fla. first tried to board a flight at the Grand Island airport on Thursday, but was denied because she had three young puppies, all believed to be two weeks old or less, Steele said. Anderson also was traveling with two small dogs, but the dogs were of age and had proper kennels to board the flight, he said.
Anderson’s parents came from western Nebraska and took two puppies, so Anderson again tried to board a flight on Friday, Steele said. She still had the two small dogs and one puppy, which she attempted to conceal in carry-on luggage.
After Anderson was denied boarding a flight Friday, she was seen entering a bathroom in the airport’s passenger terminal. Anderson then left the bathroom and another patron reported finding a dead puppy in the toilet.
Anderson was arrested and then locked up in Hall County jail where she is being charged with felony cruelty to animals.
