A woman in Tulsa, Oklahoma was seen by onlookers throwing her small puppy at police officers who were trying to talk to her after receiving reports that she was abusing the animal.
The woman has reportedly been arrested for animal cruelty, threats of violence and resisting officers. Sign now and tell Tulsa authorities to prosecute the woman and make sure she can never own animals again!
The woman has been accused of dragging and kicking her small puppy while walking and further abused the animal as people from the public tried to intervene and stop the abuse from continuing. When police officers arrived at the the scene, Powel was argumentative and visibly angry as she then reportedly proceeded to throw her puppy at the officers and flee.
The poor animal was shaken and suffered minor injuries that included scapes and cuts on its feet and stomach. The animal was then taken to a nearby shelter for assesment and further health checks and although this puppy was one of the lucky animals to escape this kind of cruelty, there have been many others who are verbally and physically threatened with violence. The holiday period of Christmas and New Years sees animals left for dead, abandoned or harmed physically and this case is one of many seen throughout the United States.
Act now and urge the authorities to prosecute this woman and make sure she never owns animals again. We need to send a strong signal to other abusers that they won't get away with it!
