Lindey, Kansas City's "miracle dog"
What's worse, dragging a small puppy for a mile on a highway -- or throwing one off of an overpass? Both horrible incidents happened right here in the state of the Missouri, and both dogs miraculously survived. We gave readers an update last week on Trooper, the puppy that was dragged by an unknowing driver on I-55 last year; he is having a smooth recovery and getting letters of love from across the globe.

And today, we bring you news of a Kansas City german shepherd that was apparently thrown over a 40-foot-tall overpass -- and survived. "Lucky Lindey," as the rescue team is now calling her, had surgery on Thursday.

Who threw Lindey over a bridge -- and how did she survive?

It's still unknown how exactly Lindey ended up falling from the Cesar Chavez viaduct and landing in the Hale Arena parking lot last Friday.

It does not, however, appear that she climbed and accidentally fell. The Missouri German Shepherd Rescue, which took in Lindey and has been raising money for her recovery, says:

Witnesses saw Lindey "suddenly come flying over" and land in a snow bank. She didn't jump or climb, and then fall or tumble over. She appeared to be propelled from behind.

No one went to Lindey's aid. One witness called to have someone "pick her up". Lindey sat there in shock and agony, and managed to drag herself as far as an icy wet spot on the conrete where she could move no further.

There was a horse show at Hale Arena and apparently two attendees eventually came to the aid of the struggling dog and drove her to the vet.

The rescue organization says that no owner showed up to see if the dog was okay.

Her condition was serious.

Why are people assuming a woman did this? Is there some information not in the story published here?

While this is horrible, it is strange that RFT isn't asking "What should people be charged with who rip up and murder babies down on Forest Park?"

A year in jail and a year of community service with the Humane Society.
