Orlando woman ran over, beat dogs that killed her cat, witnesses say
<p> An Orlando woman accused of brutally killing two dogs to seek revenge for her dead cat told Local 6 she did not hurt the dogs.</p><p> Witnesses told Orange County Animal Services the woman chased the dogs onto Lake Lawne Avenue.</p><p> Neighbors said they watched in horror as a woman ran over, then brutally beat two dogs with a bat right outside their front doors Jan. 16.</p><p> Neighbors said the woman ran one over with her tan minivan, turned around and ran the other over before she and a friend got out and beat the dogs with a bat.</p><p> One of the dogs died at the scene and the other was euthanized due to its injuries, said an OCAS report obtained by Local 6.</p><p> Doris Barnes said the attack happened right outside her front door.</p><p> "She said, 'I'm going to kill you because you killed my cat.' And the dog was just laying there," said Barnes.</p><p> Witnesses said the dogs were being walked by boys on bikes. Some said they were leashed, others said the dogs were not. The OCAS and Orlando police reports said witnesses saw boys grab a cat off a minivan and toss it at their dogs, saying "sic 'em."</p><p> Some witnesses said the cat's owner got in her van, sped off down the street chasing after the dogs and eventually ran them over.</p><p> "I'm just one old lady, I didn't do nothing," said Wanda Griffin, as she sat on the same minivan she's accused of using to get revenge on the dogs that killed her cat, 9-year-old Poopy. "He was my best friend ... I'm still sick about my cat."</p><p> Choking back tears, Griffin said neighborhood boys "took the cat off the top of my van and fed it to the dog."</p><p> Despite her anger, Griffin is an animal-lover who adopts animals from the local shelter. She said she would never hurt an animal and did not do what witnesses claim.</p><p> "Whatever God has in store for me, I guess I might have to suffer it, but I know that I didn't do it. I wouldn't hurt no animal," said Griffin. "It's the people's fault."</p><p> OCAS investigators searched her van. They found a bat inside, but no blood, no hair and the van had no signs of an accident.</p><p> Even so, she's facing serious accusations. Griffin was given citations related to the dog deaths, but she has not been arrested. Police forwarded the case to the state attorney's office, which will decide whether to charge her with a crime.</p><p> Witness are certain she's to blame.</p><p> "I don't think you should do an animal like that. I don't think that was right," said Barnes.</p>
