Dogs Thrown From Vehicle On New York Highway, Police Say

Two beagle mixes are recovering after authorities said they were tossed from a moving vehicle onto a New York highway, igniting a search for the culprits.

A man driving a tractor-trailer said he was traveling along Interstate 81 in Cortland County around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday when he saw the dogs tossed from an SUV’s back window in the southbound lane, according to the New York State Police.

The truck driver, whom police identified only as Adam, said he immediately hit the brakes and parked his vehicle on the side of the road to help. A passing state trooper assisted after spotting the trucker’s abandoned vehicle and then the two dogs, one of which was described as seriously injured.
