new-bedford-princessJimmy Correa, 24, and Jenny Torres, 31, of New Bedford, MA, who it turns out are cousins, are now claiming that they never tossed Princess, a little chihuahua, from their vehicle and that it was all a big misunderstanding. And, they want the dog back!

Earlier this week witnesses reported seeing a vehicle driving through a West End neighborhood and saw Correa toss Princess out of the window of the still moving vehicle.  They then returned about an house later and remarked that the “stupid dog” was still where they threw it.

Witnesses got the tag number when they returned and Correa and Torres were arrested and charged two felony counts of cruelty to animals. Correa at the time claimed that the dog belonged to Torres and he was just doing what she told him to do, to toss the dog.

Now the entire story is changed and they are saying it was all a big misunderstanding and they want Princess back.

Correa said he was by himself, had the dog with him, and that he borrowed Torres’ car to meet someone. He opened the door and the dog ran out.

Neighbors said they overheard the two people call the dog “stupid,“ but Correa said that Torres was calling him stupid because he let the dog get away.

Police said Torres signed the dog over to be adopted when she was arrested on Monday.

However, Correa said Torres misunderstood what she was signing and wants the dog back. The dog, Correa said belongs, to Torres’ 3-year-old daughter.

“She’s been crying ever since. We want the dog back, but they’re not going to give it back,“ he said.

Well Forever Paws Animal Shelter in Fall River had been inundated with applications to adopt Princess and they plan to pick a new family for her in about two weeks.  There’s no way that Princess will be going back to those lying pieces of trash, that’s for sure!

I doubt that anyone is buying the “new” version of events that Correa is spewing, especially with witnesses reports of the events. Now let’s just hope they aren’t able to talk their way out of the charges and get what’s coming to them!
