Animal Cruelty Charge: Forcing Dog Out of Moving Car on Garden State Parkway

SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

A Connecticut man has been charged with third-degree animal cruelty after allegedly forcing a dog out of a moving vehicle on the Garden State Parkway last month, killing it, acting Union County Prosecutor Grace H. Park announced yesterday.

Timothy Yowell, 65, of Bristol, Conn. earlier this week was charged and subsequently released on a summons with a future court date.

A joint investigation involving the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NJSPCA) and the New Jersey State Police determined that Yowell was driving a Mazda southbound on the Garden State Parkway in Clark on September 11 when the incident occurred, according to Union County Assistant Prosecutor Jill O’Malley, who is prosecuting the case. The dog was believed to be struck by a rear portion of Yowell’s vehicle before being fatally struck by a second vehicle, O’Malley said.
