Woman Throws Puppies from 3d Floor, Kills Both

The Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals received a report Saturday that a guest at the Crystal Inn at 4025 Tulane Ave. had flung two puppies from the third floor. Another guest picked up the dogs and rushed them to an emergency veterinary clinic.

One of the puppies died on the way to the clinic, and the other died while being cared for by the vet, LA/SPCA spokeswoman Jennifer Abbrecht said.

The LA/SPCA’s Cruelty Investigations team identified [Kisha] Carter [25] as a suspect in the puppies’ deaths by interviewing the guest who tried to save the dogs and examining the motel’s security camera footage, Abbrecht added. The LA/SPCA then worked with the New Orleans Police Department to take Carter into custody on Monday night.
