More details have come forward about the little brown terrier allegedly thrown from a moving vehicle on New Jersey's Garden State Parkway on Saturday at the Holmdel exit near the NJ State Troopers Barracks reported 7online.com.
Authorities investigating the egregious crime of someone tossing a defenseless little dog out of the window of a car on a highway where speeds average 65 miles per hour, have discovered the dog named "Lima" is the victim of two crimes. It has been reported Lima was a victim of theft from her family in Keansburg before being tossed out of the car.
Lima was then struck by another car before a good Samaritan stopped and retrieved her.
Lima's owners have visited their dog and are thankful the dog is alive. Veterinarians have been treating Lima for internal bleeding and other injuries. She is currently at the Red Bank Animal Hospital in Shrewsbury.
A $1,000 reward has been offered by the Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in New Jersey on Saturday for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible. The guilty party could face a six-month jail sentence and fine.
Authorities are following up on several viable leads. Let's hope the person who is responsible for this heinous crime is arrested and charged with animal cruelty to the fullest extent as the law permits.
Get well soon Lima.
