Two kittens rescued after thrown from vehicle during rush hour by

Someone threw two kittens from a moving vehicle during busy rush hour traffic on Clearview on Thursday, according to the Humane Society of Louisiana.

The organization heard of the incident from Metairie resident Alyne Pustanio. Pustanio said she was returning home from work Thursday when a car swerved unexpectedly in front of her. She said she noticed drivers swerving to miss three grey Wal-Mart bags.

“To my shock and horror there were two tiny grey kittens in the middle of the street,” Pustanio told the Humane Society. “When I had laid eyes on them, and thought they were bags, I actually saw them hit the ground in the middle lane.”

Pustanio said she pulled into a turning lane, rescued the kittens and then treated them for minor injuries after returning home.

"The criminal activity of throwing kittens into moving traffic obviously has not abated,” said Jeff Dorson, executive director of the Humane Society. He said this is the third or fourth time this has happened in as many months.

“Our continued hope is that a perpetrator will finally be caught and prosecuted, so that we can get some relief from these types of crimes,” Dorson said. “But until then we are asking drivers and passengers to have their cell phones ready or carry with them a piece of paper and pen to jot down the license plate of any vehicle that is involved in this type of vicious crime.”
