A Florida woman is suspected of drowning a 2-week-old puppy in a Nebraska airport bathroom so she could board a plane.
Grand Island police Sgt. Stan Steele says 56-year-old Cynthia V. Anderson of Edgewater, Florida, was denied access to a flight Friday at the Central Nebraska Regional Airport because the puppy was so young and not properly contained. Steele says she tried to conceal the Doberman in her carry-on bag.
He tells the Grand Island Independent (http://bit.ly/1ELDs9d ) that Anderson then was seen entering a bathroom before another woman reported finding a dead Doberman puppy in the toilet.
Steele says the Central Nebraska Humane Society conducted an autopsy. It determined the 3-week-old puppy’s cause of death was drowning.
According to the Grand Island Independent website, Anderson was arraigned in court Monday and charged with cruel neglect of animals. Her bond was set at $10,000. She remained in Hall County Jail.
