Two dogs thrown from St. Louis overpass

Friday, January 18, 2008

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Two dogs were injured after being thrown 30 feet from an overpass into a parking lot, leading the state Humane Society to offer a reward.

The organization got a call Wednesday from a witness who saw a pit bull terrier and a large golden retriever or Akita mix falling from the overpass in north St. Louis. Authorities believe the dogs were thrown.

The group on Thursday offered $2,500 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

The pit bull is being treated for broken front legs. The other dog ran away but may have been seriously injured, the Humane Society said.
