July 4, 2008 08:16 AM - A Mississauga woman who saw a person throw a dog off an overpass has some choice words for the unidentified culprit.

"You can't print what I want to say about that person," Mississauga's Deborah Pepin told The Niagara Falls Review after seeing someone throw a two-year-old German shepherd mix off the Victoria Ave. overpass in Niagara Falls on Tuesday. "I'd like to get my hands on whoever did this."

Pepin and her husband Ed were returning from a day trip to the United States at around 5:30 a.m. when she saw something falling towards the ground in front of the car.

After the dog hit the ground, Pepin looked up and saw a human arm sticking out over the wall above her.

The dog managed to get up under its own power and started walking down the road. The Mississauga couple followed the animal in their car and called 9-1-1.

Miraculously, the dog suffered only a split lip from the fall.

"He's a dog with nine lives," Niagara Falls Humane Society official Shannon Digby told The Review.

The dog is being put up for adoption.

Anyone with information can contact the Humane Society at 905-356-4404 or police at 905-688-4111, ext. 2283.

Two years ago, in a similar incident in Mississauga, a nine-week-old puppy was thrown off a bridge into the Credit River near Dundas St. W. and Mississauga Rd. The dog, named Flyer to commemorate the incident, recovered and was eventually adopted.

I know that dogs are not always right for a person or family and that animals in general can be difficult but there are so many other options than harming them. All I can say is Karma, Karma, Karma. Things have a way of coming back to get you.

I want to get my hands on these people and throw them over the overpasses to see how they like it. Nothing boils up my anger more than an animal being hurt by a human.

Good, im glad he is back with the people that love him dearly.

They loose their dog, only to find out someone tried to kill it to find out he was almost adopted to someone else.

I like happy endings.


I think, if someone threw him over on purpose, I hope they are caught and well.......

But, I cant help but think there could be the slight possibility that the dog jumped? I know its an off chance, but maybe someone was trying to catch him before he went over the side? Dogs who are scared and fleeing from someone, even if they mean no harm, will often put themselves in harms way unknowningly.


Either way, im glad he is safe and sound.

I doubt he jumped, most of these bridges have a double fence so people 'can't throw something over. This pup had help.

If they have it that hard to throw something over then what makes you think it would be easy for someone to do it?

You have no proof other than an arm that was there, thats it. There could have been multiple reasons why the dog went over, maybe it had help, or maybe the fence was damaged or maybe there wasnt any fences on that certain bridge, (most doesnt = all bridges) but the FACT is that we will never know for sure.

I just dont see why people want to automaticaly go to the bad in everyone. I know there is alot out there, but why put it where you dont even know if its true or not.

I would think if it were someone trying to save the dog....they would have made their presence known as well as that fact....

...like heck if it were me...I'd be standing there screaming....get in my car...go after the dog after it fell........called 911..........etc........
