GP Police Arrested Woman for Discarding Deceased Cat into Neighbor's Yard

Grants Pass Police arrested a woman for discarding items -- including a dead cat -- into her neighbor's yard at a southeast-city apartment complex this week.

According to the Police Department, officers responded to a complaint at the complex in the 500-block of SE L Street on Tuesday night.

Police said were alerted to a 9-1-1 call from a woman who claimed her neighbor had been throwing trash into their yard and it had escalated with the 52-year-old female subject throwing a dead cat over the fence.

Officers said an investigation revealed that the woman intentionally overturned a cat bed with a dead cat and defrosted meat over the fence. They reviewed video of the incident and then placed her into custody.

The suspect was lodged at the Josephine County Jail for Offensive Littering. She was being held without bail.
