On Monday, a boat’s fishing crew observed a man throwing a puppy from the middle span of Samoa Bridge in Humbolt County, California. The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office released information about the cruel incident on Tuesday.

The puppy, a female mixed breed pit bull type, was rescued by the crew of the fishing boat; the boat crew then reached out to the local animal control agency for help. An animal control officer transported the rescued puppy to a veterinarian, and amazingly, she was found to be okay, despite being hurled from the bridge and into the water.

The suspect is described as a white male adult, late teens early 20’s, wearing a black baseball hat with a red brim with yellow writing and a white flannel jacket The suspect left the area in an unknown direction riding a black and red bicycle.

There is a bright note in the otherwise dismal situation – one of the members of the fishing crew intends to adopt the puppy as soon as she is available.

Anyone with information for the Sheriff’s Office regarding this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at 707-268-2539.

    I think this all deals with the Dog Fighting Epidemic, it seems like dogs that are not wanted are thrown out. Sad and Sick, it there were cameras everywhere that would help.

    Thank God for the fisherman who rescued this little puppy – they deserve a round of applause for their kindness – AND to this hunk of sewer slime who did this to an innocent defenseless puppy, I TRULY hope you and your friggin’ bicycle run smack into a tractor trailer and end up as part of the undercarriage.
