KINSTON, NC (AP) -- Authorities say a Kinston woman was arrested for dragging a puppy behind her SUV.

Police charged 26-year-old Jennifer Marie Wilson with felony cruelty to animals and driving while intoxicated. She was scheduled to appear in court Monday.

According to police, Wilson had parked her SUV at a convenience store when she was approached by an officer who noticed blood behind her vehicle. Witnesses told police that they saw a small dog being dragged behind an SUV that had driven to the store Saturday morning.

The pit bull puppy mix was turned over to the Lenoir County SPCA, and then to a local animal hospital.

Lenoir SPCA President Jerry Henderson said the agency would look to place the puppy in a foster home to allow her to recover and heal.

IM PRAYING FOR THAT PUPPY AS FOR THE THING THAT DID THIS TO THE PUPPY KARMA IS COMING YOUR WAY

Let's tie her up to the back

Let's tie her up to the back of the car and drag her!

I would love to drag her

I would love to drag her behind my truck for about a mile.

YES!

ugh! I would LOVE to see that! What is wrong with her????? She better not get away with this. It's disgusting!

Is she

still in custody?

Tom

Who?

The dog?
Or the Pit Bull?

Vog

You really shouldn't insult

You really shouldn't insult dogs like that.

Classic!

Hopefully the dog, and hopefully she'll be there for a while! Unfortunately, maggot laced vermin still gets to propagate into adulthood and resemble a dog.

Maggot

...If you are referring to the piece of crap "Jennifer" as the maggot I couldn't agree more! Hopefully you aren't talking about the pit bull, they are the sweetest dogs! People have this backwards idea about them but it is the owners fault for raising them that way just like any other dog. The media doesn't help either, they make it seem like it's ONLY pit bulls that attack. Hopefully those in Kinston will handle this monster. It is sickening!
