Kisha Curtis, the woman charged with throwing her pit bull down a trash chute last year, defended herself outside the Essex County Veterans Courthouse today. Curtis admitted leaving the pit bull, named Patrick by his caregivers, in the hall outside her apartment, but denied starving him.

The Newark woman maintains that she left the dog in the care of a security guard at her apartment complex. “He was healthy the last time I saw him, and that’s how I expected him to be,” Curtis said today outside the courthouse.

Curtis faces a fourth-degree cruelty to animals charge for allegedly throwing the emaciated pit bull down a dumpster chute.

Curtis said she she was relieved to see that Patrick had recovered. “Happy about that. I wish him well…Mainly, I’m embarrassed and still feel a lot of pain.”

  1. i hope she rots slowly. Ive missed seeing this sweet precious boy getting better. hopefully more vids on his recovery will be soon

  2. She’s got money for that hair of hers and those nails. I think she could have spent that money on some food for Patrick. Her ass belongs in prison.

  3. Charges shoud NOT be dropped, they have to be upheld. People need to know that cruelty is NOT acceptable, Anywhere !!!

  4. The mindset of no responsibilty what will the government give me and if it feels good i dont care types should not own a pet.
