Police are investigating another case of animal cruelty after witnesses saw two dogs being thrown from an Interstate 680 overpass Monday on the city’s South Side.

According to 21 WFMJ-TV, The Vindicator’s broadcast partner, witnesses told police they saw a blue van stop where the interstate crosses Midlothian Boulevard and men throw the dogs onto the road below.

Motorists came to the aid of the dogs, who were unconscious at the time. The dogs, Thor and Sadie, were taken to Animal Charity in Boardman, where X-rays show no broken bones, but Thor did suffer a bruised lung.

The owner, Jaime Jones, told WFMJ-TV the dogs were stolen earlier Monday from her property on Lemoyne Avenue.

Police are still looking for the owner of the van.
