Woman Charged With Felony Animal Abuse

KSAL StaffDecember 11, 2014

A Kansas City woman has been charged with felony animal abuse and animal neglect after her dog was abused so severely that his eyes had to be surgically removed.

Jackson County prosecutors charged 36-year-old Kimberly Anderson on Wednesday in the Nov. 9 attack on the Tibetan spaniel named Roadrunner. A witness says Anderson threw the small dog off of a third-floor balcony before kicking and choking him.

Anderson was previously issued a municipal citation in the same case. She tells police she didn’t abuse the dog and that he was hit by a car.

KC Pet Project manages the city’s animal shelter and said Friday that the dog is doing well at a foster home.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Anderson has an attorney.
