NEW ORLEANS, LA (NBC33) — WARNING: The video attached to this story could be considered disturbing to some viewers.
Surveillance video captured the image of two puppies that were tossed from the third floor balcony of a New Orleans hotel. The woman accused of killing the animals was arrested on felony cruelty charges.
The New Orleans Police Department reports that the incident occurred on Saturday, April 6 at the Crystal Inn on Tulane Ave. A guest staying at the hotel found the two puppies on the ground. They were suffering from severe injuries.
The guest rushed the puppies to a local veterinary clinic. We’re told one died on the way to the hospital and the second died at the clinic.
Police were contacted and they worked with the hotel to obtain the surveillance video. They found the disturbing image of the animals hurling through the air. The footage clearly shows that the animals had been thrown, rather than accidentally falling.
