Florida Woman Hurls Crate Containing Cat Into River After Clashing With Ex-Boyfriend: Deputies


An Oak Hill, Florida woman has been arrested on a charge of animal cruelty after she was accused of throwing a cat in a crate into the Intracoastal Waterway following a domestic dispute. The cat, Stanley, was rescued and is OK.

Christa Anne Thistle, 53, was also charged with simple assault after she demanded to be taken to jail so she could make a phone call, bond out and kill her ex-boyfriend.

Deputies were called to the Riverwood Park Campground at 298 H H Burch Road, Oak Hill, shortly before 7 p.m. Thursday. They learned that Thistle and her long-term boyfriend had recently broken up, and they got into an argument over him not moving out fast enough. She began moving his belongings out of the RV, knocked over some food that was being cooked, then picked up Stanley’s cat crate and threw him into the river.

The boyfriend jumped into the water to rescue Stanley but estimated the cat was submerged for about 20 seconds. Stanley was still wet and shivering when deputies arrived, and the boyfriend was wet from the waist down, consistent with jumping in the river to save him.


Thistle denied the allegations. She was transported to the Volusia County Branch Jail where she remained in custody Friday morning with no bond pending first appearance.
