LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. (AP) -- March 29, 2011 --

Lee County Sheriff's deputies have arrested a woman for allegedly throwing a puppy off a second-floor balcony.

Cathy Sue Garrison was charged Monday with felony animal
cruelty. Bond was set at $1,500.

Two men brought the 3-month old puppy to a veterinarian.
According to a police report, the puppy had an open fracture to its
left femur and was euthanized.

An investigation said Garrison was angry with the dog and was
punishing it by throwing it from a second-floor balcony on Sunday.

    this womans disregard for life is scary. I agree neuter her and don't let her around children. Any living breathing animal/person is a gift from God. No amount of anger constitutes killing a gift from God. The laws need to be changed that acts of cruelty to animals hold the same charges as acts of cruelty to humans. This would put a stop to a lot of this. Shame on you Cathy Sue Garrison may your conscience eat you alive and you have no rest for what you did to this poor defenseless animal.

      Ummm ... GV ... you've just made a point about yourself. Are you really "to" stupid to spell??? Or was it just a simple typo? Typos are often misconstrued as spelling errors - but then, there are a plethora of peabrains posting here that just flat out can not spell or understand English grammar ...

        It should be "cannot" and not "can not". Count yourself as one of the plethora.

    Someone should throw her over the balcony.

    This woman should be made to have her tubes tied. If she will do something so heinous to a puppy for making her mad, what would she do to a child?
