Two Puppies Dead After Being Thrown Out of Moving SUV Onto Alorton Interstate, Cops Say

Yesterday, a driver threw two puppies out of a moving SUV onto an interstate in Alorton and unlike Lindey, the Kansas City german shepherd who recovered after a brutal fall, these two little pups did not survive.

Police say that the puppies -- one white and one brown -- died in the incident when they were hit by another car.

It's possible they may have been hit by more than one car.

The suspect or suspects at this point remains unknown.

The horrible incident happened on Interstate 225 North near Route 15 in Alorton, KSDK (Channel 5) reports. It was around 2 a.m. in the morning when the dogs were thrown to their death, officials say.

Lindey, Kansas City's "miracle dog" also thrown on a highway.

It appears that there were other cars on the roadway at the time -- though no drivers were hurt in the incident. It's unclear what breeds the dogs were.

If caught, the suspects could face felony charges of aggravated animal cruelty.

Witnesses, police say, called in with details yesterday about the thrown puppies -- but they did not have a license plate number. Cops say it was a white Ford Expedition.

The case is similar to a dog-throwing incident in Kansas City earlier this year when a german shepherd later named "Lucky Lindey" was sent flying over a 40-foot-tall overpass. In this case, the dog was very badly injured but somehow survived and required intensive surgery after good samaritan passersby helped rescue her.

I couldn't get past the misuse of "may have ran" instead of "run" in the caption. :P

Proof: people are no better than animals.. However you never see a dog throwing a baby out the window. We are supposed to be able to control our urges and not live by instinct alone, well done humans.

This is not new news. People have been doing this for years to unwanted animals. It's sick. If people will treat animals like this how do you think they treat other humans.

What's sad is how hard it is to give these people more than a slap on the wrist even if they do catch them. >:\

Horrible and sad yes but trying to wonder how someone could do something like this? Not really, surprised considering people do far worst to each other every day...

I once was riding in a car in the express lanes on 70 when a van several hundred feet in front of me threw a dog out of a side door. We were unable to stop to help it. The dog immediately got up, shook it off and, as I watched in the rearview mirror, jumped into the through lanes of 70. That was seven years ago, and I will never forget that.

And we should help getting them there, by pushing this driver out of a fast moving vehicle into traffic! I cannot wrap my mind around, how anybody is even capable of such an act!!

Your thinly-veiled attempt at blaming this on our current administration is pathetic.

Had to Google where Alorton is. And that should be interstate 255, not 225. This is sad news either way, but your article is a mess.
