Woman Who Threw Dog From SF Window Identified

The Jack Russell terrier thrown out of a third-story San Francisco window on Sunday is in stable condition -- and the identity of the thrower is now in the public realm.

Danielle Walker, 22, was booked into county jail on suspicion of animal cruelty after she allegedly tossed the dog from a window on the 100 block of Albion Street in the Mission, according to the San Francisco Appeal online newspaper.

The dog's wild ride occurred at 1:34 p.m. on Sunday, when cops responded to a witness's report that "someone" had thrown a dog out of a window.

That someone was Walker, who told police when they arrived that the dog wasn't hers. Ok, then.

The dog's owner, a San Francisco man who did not want to be named, came outside to retrieve the animal and bumped into cops, to whom he identified Walker, who came out of the building a short time later, as the thrower.

The dog is in the care of San Francisco Animal Care and Control, where it remains as of Wednesday.
