Reward offered for person who threw poodle from moving car on busy N.J. street

A $5,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction on cruelty charges for the person who threw a poodle from a moving car in Paterson, leaving the small dog with life-threatening injuries.

The animal rights group PETA said a witness saw the dog – now named Bear – thrown from a car about 1:30 p.m. Saturday in the 900 block of Market Street.

The dog suffered pelvic and skull fractures, a herniated diaphragm, skin lesions, was emaciated and had matted fur, PETA officials said.

Paterson Animal Control found the dog severely injured in the street and took him for emergency medical care at Oradell Animal Hospital in Paramus.

“When we picked him up, we didn’t believe he would even make it to the hospital,” Chief Animal Control Officer John DeCando said in a statement. “That’s how bad his condition is.”
