Minneapolis woman tries to mail a puppy to Georgia
Possibly thinking (OK wrong word) that “If it fits, it ships,” Stacey Champion, 39, from Minneapolis tried to send a puppy in a sealed box to Georgia through the U.S. Mail.
Fortunately the puppy moved the box, making the postal workers more than a little suspicious. Inside they found a panting Poodle mix puppy with no food, no water and no air holes for breathing.
Postal authorities said that the puppy would surely have died in transit. Besides rough handling, boxes travel in cargo holds that are unheated and unpressurized.
The puppy was turned over to animal control and is doing fine.
Champion, however, is charged with animal cruelty, a misdemeanor, but she could face serious federal charges of trying to ship a live animal through the U.S. Mail. SourceTell me again why humans are at the top of the food chain
