SPCA Seeks Information on Woman Who Threw Dog From Car

The Suffolk County SPCA is offering a $2,000 reward for information on a woman who threw a small poodle from her car in Mastic.

The Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) is seeking the public’s help with identifying a woman who threw a small dog from her car in Mastic. 

On the evening of June 23, a witness claimed to see a woman, described as Hispanic and in her 30s, throw a small white dog that looked to be a toy poodle from her car in front of the Exxon gas Station on Montauk Highway, according to Roy Gross, chief of the Suffolk County SPCA. 

The woman was described as having straight brown hair with a small lip piercing in her lower lip and a tattoo of a name written in script on the right side of her neck. She was said to have been driving a white small-sized four-door sedan and had four children in the back seat between the ages of three and five years old, and an older child in the passenger seat, according to the witness.

The Suffolk County SPCA is offering a $2,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest. Chief Gross said that the incident was caught on videotape and asked that the woman turn herself in. Anyone with information is being asked to call the Suffolk County SPCA at (631) 382-7722. All calls will be kept confidential.

When and if they catch this woman with the small lip piercing and tattoo on her neck (branded?), they should make her sit through a full viewing of the movie " Throw Momma From the Train" as punishment.

@MT Poquets: The canine unit is interviewing the little West Highland Terrier for that information. It's slow going since he doesn't speak German.

Frank.... I hope you're kidding!! Anyone who can intentionally harm someone weaker and smaller than them like an animal, is definitely capable of hurting a small child or an elderly person. Where have you been for the past 30 years where research has clearly proven connections between killers and animal abusers. There is a proven predisposition for violence in people who do these acts. It simply has to stop!! The abuse of animals and children in this country is rampant. People like you who make that whole "they're a human and deserve better" argument make me want to puke! All humans are OBVIOUSLY not created equal! The people who do these things are heartless at best, and extremely dangerous at worst. "THE BRIGHT SIDE?" Where is the bright side in throwing a dog out of a moving vehicle!?? Yes, that is what it says "THREW" This happens frequently - pull your head out of the sand or somewhere else? and a "chance to be adopted" Brilliant! Lets all throw unwanted animals out the window so if they are lucky enough to survive, they are merely scarred for life. but at least they'll have a chance to be adopted!! REALLY?!! The apathy you show here is EXACTLY what is wrong with this country today. Minimizing the criminal and harmful acts of people who we should excuse just because they're human, is NOT helping anyone! That poor dog who never hurt anyone is just another victim of that POS who threw it out the window. I only hope someone intervenes before she does that to one of her kids who becomes inconvenient! I'll take my dogs any day over the crap that walks this earth on 2 legs!!!

Pretty clear picture of the car. Just track the license plate. Kids had to see this. The dog was pushed from the car. Poor thing ran around to get back in. When caught she took the dog to Smiths Point.
