Dog thrown out of SUV in front of animal shelter found days later, charges filed

BRYSON CITY, N.C. – Charges have been filed against a man who allegedly threw a puppy out of an SUV outside a North Carolina animal shelter.

“This morning even though our gate was open he chose to sling a puppy out the window,” PAWS Bryson City posted to Facebook Sept. 8.

Video shows a man opening and closing a passenger door before pointing at the ground and tossing the puppy out of the window seconds later. 

The puppy, affectionately named “Apollo,” was found days later. He was reportedly malnourished, loaded with fleas and parasites, with some small abrasions and two small fractures.
