Woman Drowns Puppy in Airport Bathroom so She Can Board Plane
According to the Smoking Gun a woman trying to board a flight at the Central Nebraska Regional Airport allegedly drowned a two-week-old Doberman because she wasn't allowed to board a flight with the puppy.
The Grand Island Independent reports that Cynthia Anderson, 56, was arrested on animal abuse charges.
Anderson tried to board a flight at the Central Nebraska Regional Airport but was denied access to the plane because the dog was so young and not properly contained.
Anderson first tried to board a plane with three uncaged puppies, but was turned away by airport personnel. After her parents took two of the dogs, Anderson returned to the airport with the remaining puppy in a carry on bag.
She again was not allowed to board the plane.
She allegedly then took the little Doberman puppy into an airport bathroom, where she allegedly drowned it in a toilet bowl.
Police reported that the puppy was taken to the Humane Society and autopsied. It was found to have water in one of its lungs.
Cynthia Anderson remains locked up in the Hall County jail on the felony count.
