A dog is dead and a New Jersey woman is facing a felony animal cruelty charge for allegedly throwing her boyfriend’s pug-mix from the 17th floor of an apartment complex in Camden. According to NJ.com, 28-year-old Juanita Jones allegedly threw Howie Ellis’ dog, Hazel, to her death on November 30 after a fight.
The accused woman’s boyfriend found his two-year-old dog on the sidewalk, not far from where his car was parked, moments after he left Jones’ apartment. A witness to the horrific incident reported that Ellis was “really upset” after finding his dog on the ground and noted that he had tried to bring her into the apartment complex immediately after find her, but apartment managers denied his attempt.
Jones, who is apparently no longer in jail, is scheduled to appear in a Camden County Superior Court next week.
