A drunken woman in Phippsburg, Maine faces charges of animal cruelty after several people witnessed her tossing two kittens into Center Pond on July 4th. Justine Lovig, 41, has also been charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol and violating conditions of her release.
“She admitted to submerging the kittens. We walked back to her car and she fed the kittens a sandwich. They were eating the sandwich very quickly,” the officer wrote in his report.
The Coastal Humane Society is currently caring for the kittens who have been named “Piglet and Eeyore.”
“They have been thoroughly examined by Dr. Wehr and appear to be doing well. They are currently enjoying some R&R at home with one of our devoted fosters...and the kittens may have found their forever home already! Foster family reports they have lots of energy.
Lovig is banned from possessing any domestic animals, must stay away from Center Pond and is prohibited from consuming alcohol. She is scheduled to appear in court in September.
