Police searching for woman who dumped puppies in dumpster

Police arrest woman in connection to California puppy-dumpster case

The young dogs - which would still fit snugly in the palm of a human hand - survived, thanks to a passerby who found them.

The woman, who has not been named, could face seven felony counts of animal cruelty and a maximum of six years holed up in the slammer if convicted.

The relatively normal action took a morbid turn when a passerby rummaged through the same dumpster about 15 minutes later to find the bag full of three-day-old live puppies that are believed to be terrier mixes, according to Welsh.

A woman was caught on camera dumping a bag of puppies next to a dumpster.

Commander Chris Mayer with animal services said he was building an animal cruelty case against the woman with the help of the Riverside County Sheriff's office and the District Attorney's office. Authorities have also now discovered dozens of dogs living in her home.

The mother of the dumped puppies may be among the 38 dogs seized from the home, according to the release. You can see the woman drive up behind an auto parts store in Coachella.

Real Madrid Close To Agreeing £1.4 Billion Kit Deal With Adidas
The Belgium worldwide has been linked with a move to Real Madrid over the past season or so, but a deal has failed to materialise. Benzema took his tally to 21 LaLiga goals for the season after netting a hat-trick in a 3-0 win over Bilbao on Sunday afternoon.

An employee at the store then contacted animal services, and authorities learned the bag contained seven puppies. "This was a shameful act".

Culwell is now being held at a jail in Coachella Valley, Welsh says.

Almost every state has passed laws making animal cruelty a felony in some or all cases, the researchers said, "a dramatic change" in how the crimes are viewed and prosecuted.

Typically, animal cruelty cases in the Southern California county don't result in much jail time, but, he said, this may be an exception. The temperature was in the low 90s that day, and the puppies were near death when animal control officers arrived.

According to the Humane Society of the United States, hoarding behavior can hurt animals, with women as the main culprits; animal abusers, meanwhile, are most often men.
