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.
