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.

    Another upstanding citizen whose world revolves around the all mighty bottle. I suppose she would never have done such a thing had she not been under the influence. Having lived with a drunk for many years I happen to know the booze just brings out the things the person WOULD do. I once had a psychiatrist tell me my husband’s excuse that he was drunk was just that and excuse and a poor one. If she had violated the condition of her release why is she still out in the world, sit her ass in jail where she belongs.I’m glad Piglet and Eeyore survived this POS!

    Another drunken idiot who has the brain power of a doorknob – her actions proved she is a cruel abusive hag – Thank God the kittens were rescued – Now hogtie her and dump her useless ass in the nearest landfill with the rest of the trash – exactly where she belongs.
