A woman, who claims to have been “frustrated” with her small dog, is facing an animal cruelty charge after tossing the pet out of her minivan near Weatherford, Texas. According to WFAA News, a woman’s surveillance camera captured the cruel incident on video and lead to the suspect.
A woman, named Vanessa, found the Chihuahua mix named Pumpkin, on Thursday morning. After discovering the dog, Vanessa decided to review her surveillance footage to see if there was a clue as to where the dog came from. Sure enough, the footage revealed the truth…a woman driving a minivan had dumped Pumpkin out of the car. The video also caught the license plate on the minivan, which led the authorities to Pumpkin’s owner, 43-year-old Janet Byas.
Initially, Byas denied throwing Pumpkin from her car, but after being shown the damning video, she admitted that she was the culprit. Sgt. Ricky Montgomery with the Parker County Sheriff’s Office said that, “She indicated that she was frustrated with the dog because it kept getting out of her property and she couldn’t handle it anymore.” Sgt. Montgomery’s response to the woman’s excuse was a simple “grow up.”
Pumpkin is receiving care at the Parker County Animal Control.
