Approved ~~ MJM

Florida woman is facing animal cruelty charges after nearly drowning her cat, three days after the U.S. Senate voted unanimously to make animal abuse a federal crime, police say.

Edgewater police say they received a call about a woman harming her cat. When they arrived, they found 37-year-old Amanda Goodwin in a drainage culvert “holding a cat in obvious distress.”

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported that Goodwin and the cat were both wet and muddy, with the feline shaking and terrified.

“She was shoving the cat’s head in the culvert pipe and putting dirt on the cat,” Fox 35 Orlando quoted a witness as telling police. “I’ve never seen a cat pant like a dog. Its gums were white.”
