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.
