A woman has been arrested on animal cruelty charges just days after footage of her allegedly tossing a bagful of newborn puppies into the trash went viral.
We cannot believe that someone would be this cruel and to do something like this in broad daylight? Luckily, the puppies were found before they had a chance to succumb to heatstroke and are now safe and sound.
Authorities in California arrested Deborah Sue Culwell on Tuesday after surveillance video captured her dumping the helpless animals into a recycling bin last Thursday when temperatures reached a sweltering 35 degrees.
A judge sentenced her to 365 days in jail, reduced to 174 days with credit for time already served, according to the station.
“There is no excuse for dumping puppies,” Animal Services commander Chris Mayer said.
