Posted on 02/01/2011 7:19:42 PM PST by MplsSteve
A Minneapolis woman has been cited for animal cruelty after postal workers say they discovered a puppy in a box she was mailing to Georgia.
Police say the box was taped shut and had no air holes. And, had it been sent for delivery, the box would have been put in an airplane's unheated and non-pressurized cargo hold. Sgt. William Palmer says the Postal Service told police the dog would have died.
Postal Service spokesman Pete Nowacki says post office employees became suspicious when the box fell off the counter after the woman left last Tuesday. Postal inspectors were summoned, the box was opened and the 4-month-old poodle mix was found inside, panting hard, but unharmed.
Nowacki said it was the first time he heard of something like this in his 25 years on the job.
"I'm dumbfounded," said Nowacki. " I can't see a way you look at this and think it's a good idea."

I’d bet the person votes Democrat.
I hope they track her down and then wrap her head in plastic wrap and put her in a laundry bag and hook it on a high speed centrifuge and give her a few spins. She sounds like the kind of woman you would want to follow around just to see what she does next. I hope she doesn’t have any children.
Judge: “How do you plead?”
Woman: “Too stupid to live.”
Did she not answer these question when mailing the package?

Waddayoubet she watched too many of this cell phone commercial and is now planning to sue the company for giving her the idea?
(I think the commercials are funny and to the point - but some people, I bet, have no idea what the point was)
I CAN HAS NOO ONUR? DIS WUN STOOPID.
Put her in a box and tape it shut and send her USPS across the country and see how she’d like it.
What a totally clueless moron.
If there’s ever a case for someone not being allowed to own any pets ever again, she’s the poster child.
You can’t mail lottery tickets? They must be a haz-mat item when the letter spills its contents of them!
So invariably she'll have four or five. Go figure.
Maybe she wanted the person to receive a dead dog in the mail. She might be more evil than stupid...
