Chihuahua thrown from car; two arrested

Two people were arrested Tuesday after they threw a dog out the window of a moving SUV in New Bedford, Mass., police said.

At first, witnesses thought it was an accident, but then they saw the driver yelling at the dog, according to Fox News

According to police, the pair threw Princess, a 1-year-old Chihuahua, from the window of their SUV as the car was speeding down the street. The couple then drove back around the block.

“These people were overheard laughing, saying that the stupid dog was still there waiting. Turns out that the dog wasn’t so stupid at all, because that allowed witnesses the opportunity to give us the license plate,” New Bedford police Lt. Jeffrey Silva told WCVB-TV in Boston.

Princess wasn’t injured in the incident and will be put up for adoption at a local animal shelter.

Jenny Torres, 31, and Jimmy Correa, 24, were arraigned Wednesday on felony animal abuse and abandonment charges.

Please send information on the animal rescue shelter housing this chihuahua. I might be interested in adopting it.
Thanks,
Gail

They both need to be thrown out of the car, is there anyway to find out where these people are going to be in court, I think they need the FULL law thrown at them
