Woman With Mental Illness Throws Dog Over Flordia Bridge, Claims That ‘Dogs Can Fly’

A mentally unstable woman threw her Jack Russell terrier over the Singer Island bridge in Florida because she claimed that “dogs could fly.” BJ the Jack Russell terrier luckily survived the 50-foot drop and was taken to hospital for medical treatment. A lifeguard saw the entire incident and remained with the dog until help arrived. The dog is being treated at Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control center and will shortly be re-homed after a full background check if complete. The woman who threw the dog could face animal abuse charges, but the reporters are saying that the charges may get dropped due to the woman’s mental health illness.
