A North Little Rock, Arkansas woman has been arrested for throwing a ten-pound dog off a fifth floor balcony. When authorities arrived at Campus Towers, Annie O’Neal, 20, told authorities she didn’t mean to kill the dog, claiming she has been wearing high heel shoes and tripped – causing the dog to fall of the balcony to its death.
The dog’s owner however tells a different story. According to Thv11News, when police arrived, the dog’s 65-year-old owner had been bleeding from his nose and had blood stains on his shirt. He told authorities O’Neal had been hired to come over and help him care for his dog, but this time he said she “switched on” – punched him, acted strangely and then threw the dog off the balcony.
O’Neal has been charged with animal cruelty and third-degree battery.
