BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputies have arrested a man accused of throwing a puppy over the fence of the Capital Area Animal Welfare Society animal shelter over the weekend.
The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/Mvg8jU ) 39-year-old Richard Hawn was booked early Wednesday with cruelty to animals and with traffic warrants.
Deputies say an anonymous caller contacted the sheriff's office Tuesday night and told deputies the man's name and location.
Glenda Parks, a board member with the society, said the hound mix puppy, called "Jimmy" by shelter workers, seems to be in good condition.
