A Florida woman accused of drowning a 3-week-old puppy in the restroom of a central Nebraska airport has been placed on probation for two years.
57-year-old Cynthia Anderson of Edgewater apologized and pleaded for mercy during her court appearance in Hall County in Grand Island Thursday.
In May, Anderson pleaded no contest to a charge of cruel neglect of an animal resulting in its death.
The Central Nebraska Regional Airport in Grand Island stopped Anderson from boarding a flight on January 23rd, because the puppy was not in a proper container. Authorities say Anderson was seen entering the restroom. Another woman later reported finding the carcass of the Doberman puppy in a toilet.
