What constitutes littering in North Carolina? That's the basis behind an appeal filed by the attorneys for the two former PETA workers convicted in Hertford County last month, after being arrested for dumping bags of dead dogs in a dumpster. Adria Hinkle and Andrew Cook were originally charged with animal cruelty, but found not guilty. Instead, the jury convicted them of littering. Their lawyers are asking that verdict be set aside, saying placing discarded material in a dumpster is not littering.
