Around 8 o'clock Friday morning, a witness says they saw something very disturbing on the Liberty Expressway near the Jefferson Street exit.
"The witness stated they saw an individual toss at least two kittens out of a moving vehicle. They further stated the kittens hit the pavement and then rolled down the embankment," said Phyllis Banks with the Albany Police Department.
Albany Police officers tracked down the Ford F150 from which the kittens were thrown.
After questioning several people, police arrested 28-year-old Gavino Murillo with obstruction for giving misleading information.
His sisters, Sandy and Lynn Murillo, were later charged with Animal cruelty.
Cops say Sandy was driving while Lynn threw the kittens out of the passenger side window.
"If the allegations are true that these people threw kittens out on the bypass, I hope they're prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law," said Albany Humane Society Executive Director Donna Strickland.
Strickland was upset when she heard the news. She says dumping animals anywhere is unacceptable.
"They could have easily drove right here and dropped that litter of kittens off," said Strickland.
She said pet owners should take responsibility for their animals and take the proper steps if they don't want their pets to have babies.
"If you're going to allow you pets to continue to breed and you don't want them, at least bring them here. Don't throw them out and injure them for no reason. Have you pets spayed or neutered and you won't have that problem," said Strickland.
Police have not arrested the sisters yet. They hope the women turn themselves in soon.
We were told animal control agents and an officer searched the area where the kittens were thrown, but were unable to locate them.
