KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A 36-year-old Kansas City woman is facing a felony animal abuse charge after witnesses say they saw her throw a dog off a third-floor balcony and then continue abusing it.

The Jackson County prosecutor’s office says Kimberly Anderson also has been charged with misdemeanor animal abandonment for incidents last month.

Witnesses told investigators they saw Anderson throw her small dog off an apartment complex balcony and later pick it up and slam it to the ground. They say Anderson also choked the animal with a leash and left it outside.

Both of the dog’s eyes were removed as a result of its injuries.

Prosecutors have asked that part of her bond include the stipulation that she have no contact with animals. It was unclear if she had obtained an attorney.
