SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — The woman who allegedly tossed two Persian cats into the Willamette River one week ago, Springfield resident Betty Gould, was released from the Lane County Jail Friday night. Someone posted her bail, which was brought down from $4,500 to $1,500.
On Saturday, protesters stood outside her Springfield Salon, Hair by Betty, holding signs. They say they hope the nearly 60 cats currently in her home will be taken away from her.
The group says it will create a Facebook page regarding other action they plan to take. Betty Gould was in her shop but did not want to speak with us.
