TAMPA, Fla. – Officials in Hillsborough County want one Tampa woman to no longer own pets after she was caught throwing her cat into a trash compactor.

According to documents, on September 20, Hillsborough County’s Animal Control Division filed a petition against Carla Vonshey Lise, 21, in hopes of barring her from owning any animals.

The petition says that on July 26, 2022, Tampa Police Department contacted Hillsborough County Animal Control regarding a woman attempting to kill her cat.

Officers informed Animal Control that the cat was thrown into a trash compactor.

According to the filing, Animal Control Officer Lannigan arrived at the residence and was informed by Tampa Police, that Carla Lise, 21, was arrested for aggravated animal cruelty and booked into the Orient Road jail.

Animal Control Officer Lannigan spoke with the witness and a cat owner, Candace Brumfield.

Candace told the officer that she saw Lise holding her cat ‘Queen’ and quickly walk up the ramp toward the apartment complex’s trash compactor.

Candace then saw Lise throw ‘Queen’ into the compactor and proceed to close and lock the door of the compactor.

Candace stated she ran to the compactor which was on and running when ‘Queen’ was intentionally thrown in with the intent to kill ‘Queen’.

The woman was able to locate ‘Queen’ who was found unharmed underneath the trash compactor, according to the filing.

The petition says that Lise is either “unable, unwilling, or unfit” to provide animal care because she tormented “Queen to inflict a cruel death upon her.”

She was also stated as using “excessive or repeated infliction of unnecessary pain or suffering.”

The county is asking the court to permanently prohibit Lise from owning, harboring, or otherwise caring for animals.

On September 21 in the court’s civil division, a Notice to Appear and Petition for Enjoinment was filed commanding Lise to appear in the Criminal Courthouse annex on October 19.
