BATON ROUGE - A woman who runs an animal rescue organization in Mississippi admitted to News 2 that she and another woman dumped animals at Capitol Area Animal Welfare Society in Baton Rouge.

Jean Norton, President of Choctaw Ridge Farms, said she and Beverly Greenwood, Vice President of the organization, have made at least 50 trips to drop off animals at CAAWS over the past three years.

"It's a mistake. We shouldn't have done what we did. We did it because we were trying to do something for the dog and we got ourselves in trouble doing it," Norton said.

According to CAAWS, the women have dumped more than 90 dogs and cats in the past year.

The President of CAAWS signed papers yesterday to have a judge issue a warrant to arrest the women. Dumping animals is a misdemeanor offense in East Baton Rouge Parish.

Norton told News 2 she has learned her lesson and will stop dumping animals.
