The Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office said that they arrested 39-year-old Veronica F. Gordon on Friday, after being accused of dumping four little kittens on State Road 87.

Around 11:45 a.m., police received a call from a concerned motorist who saw Gordon throwing a cat from her car window. The caller followed Gordon’s car and saw her throwing out three additional cats from her window.

When stopped by police, Gordon admitted to throwing out cats from her vehicle. One cat was recovered, and police estimate that it is about 7 weeks old.

It was taken to a veterinarian for treatment. Police were unable to find the other cats. Gordon was charged with animal cruelty, and her bail was set at $5,000.
