A not guilty plea was entered in Springfield Municipal Court for a 62-year-old woman charged with attempted animal abuse for throwing two cats in the Willamette River.
Police says Betty Ann Gould is a Persian cat breeder. They say she put two of her cats in a bag Friday and threw them in the river.
The Register-Guard reports police found the bag stuck in a tree branch and rescued the animals.
