Dog Needs Help After Miraculously Surviving Being Thrown Off A Bridge

Comments Off on Dog Needs Help After Miraculously Surviving Being Thrown Off A Bridge

“Words fail me, if you don’t want your pet hand it in to a shelter, unless your scared they will be after you for abusing the pet; if you’ve done nothing wrong, there is no shame in admitting you can’t cope! Better that than end the life of an innocent that gave it’s all just to love you, despite how treated. Somebody knows more about this & I would beg that you please contact the police if there is anything you know, if a pet describing the one below has suddenly disappeared from your neighbourhood; or someone has told you they surrendered the animal. Please this person needs to pay for his actions, who ever it is, they must be a little un-balanced to do this to a dog! Didn’t anyone see the incident from the bridge?, please think back, did you see someone behaving strangely with a dog on the bridge?? the video link is below, sorry I couldn’t get it to play in WP.”

Lindey is alive today thanks to the fast actions of two animal lovers.

Witnesses say the German shepherd was thrown from a bridge in Kansas City falling over forty feet.

Poor Lindey Thrown from bridge

The couple rushed the dog to the veterinarian and now they are trying to raise the funds to get her the surgery she needs.

A horse show was being held at the Hale Arena in Kansas City when witnesses saw a 2-year-old German shepherd come flying off the bridge and land in a snow bank, she appeared to have been thrown. Although one witness called for help, no one rushed to her aid until two horse show attendees pulled up. The two animal lovers didn’t hesitate to come to her aid, putting her in their car and getting her to the vet as fast as they could.

Thanks to the quick actions of her rescuers Lindey was at the vet within 30 minutes of her fall. “That made a huge difference,” said Dr. Smith. Her injuries were severe. “Obviously there was a great deal of trauma. She was in shock.”

Lindey is lucky to even be alive after her horrific fall. “When dogs fall that far they assume an orientation in space where front legs are coming down first, followed by their head,” said veterinarian Dr. Richard Smith. “We call that a 3-point landing and it’s not very pleasant, when front legs give out and then their chin hits the ground and causes damage to their mouth as well.” Lindey’s rescuers believe her landing in a snow bank very well saved her life. Though Lindey is not out of the woods yet.

Lindey will need complicated and expensive surgery to repair both of her front legs and damage she sustained to her teeth. The surgery along with follow-up care could cost $10,000. Lindey also sustained some internal injuries“She had some blood in her stomach, some compression in her lungs,” said Dr. Smith.  Her internal injuries seem to be stabilizing and will be monitored for another week or two to make sure there is no residual internal damage.

Approximately $4,000 has been raised to date to help Lindey.

Man Arrested For Kicking Kittens Across Grocery Store Parking Lot

Comments Off on Man Arrested For Kicking Kittens Across Grocery Store Parking Lot

“At last he has been caught, I remember doing this story back in May. Lets hope he gets what he deserves; if he can do that to a kitten in public, what happens behind closed doors?”

AUSTIN — Austin police have arrested a man for kicking kittens and throwing them across a grocery store parking lot. Mark Sheldon Watson, 29, is charged with cruelty to non-livestock animals. That’s a state jail felony.

According to his arrest affidavit, on May 12, 2012, Watson came to the HEB located at 2110 W. Slaughter Lane with a box of kittens to give away. The box said “Free Kittens for Mother’s Day.” When store managers asked Watson to leave the property, police say he became angry and violent.

Witnesses watched as Watson kicked the box of kittens, then picked one up and threw it hard, 50-60 feet across the parking lot. That kitten did not survive, but its brother, Banjo, did. Banjo was taken to an animal shelter in Travis County.

The affidavit says HEB has surveillance video of the incident showing the kitten hitting the ground, then shaking uncontrollably.

Police say witnesses tried following Watson but he picked up a cinder block and hurled it at them.

Investigators tried tracking down Watson. They released surveillance video of him walking away from the store.

Police were unable to make an arrest until Sept. 10. That’s when a woman came forward and reported that Watson was showing her the TV news reports of the incident on a smartphone and bragging that he was the one responsible.

Austin police arrested Watson and charged him with a state jail felony. If convicted, he faces up to two years in state jail.

His bond has been set at $10,000.

Man, 22, Accused of Hurling Kitten Against Wall

Comments Off on Man, 22, Accused of Hurling Kitten Against Wall

“Another ugly bug…they all need stamping on!”

KETTERING, Ohio — A 22-year-old man was arrested Wednesday on a misdemeanor charge of animal cruelty after he was accused of grabbing a kitten by its neck and throwing it against a wall.

A police officer who found the injured animal after the incident Monday night rushed it to a veterinarian on Clyo Road, who has been able to save it.

The kitten police officers are calling Renn may have suffered neurological damage and for sure suffered a broken pelvis in several places. Veterinarian Sarah Erwin said the animal’s injuries are similar to what they see in animals that have been hit by cars.

The officers have taken up a collection and have agreed — along with an aide at the vet’s office — to pay the medical bill for Renn, Officer Ron Roberts, Kettering police information officer, told News Center 7’s Kate Bartley on Wednesday.

Police on Monday night were dispatched to an address in the 2900 block of Aerial Avenue after neighbors called to complain about a man they said was intoxicated and playing music at a loud level, Roberts said.

One of the neighbors said the man, identified as Michael Smith, had killed the kitten, Roberts said.

The animal is believed to be Smith’s. He’s accused of having “grabbed the cat around the neck, kind of wrung its neck, kinda threw it against a wall,” Roberts said.

According to the preliminary investigation, Smith was making a lot of noise, Roberts said, “and due to his level of impairment,” he didn’t like that a neighbour asked him to calm down, “so he kinda took his frustrations out on a 3-month-old cat.”
