Woman accused of dumping bag of puppies near dumpster arrested

USA

California authorities on Monday arrested the woman who was caught on camera allegedly tossing a bag of newborn puppies next to a dumpster behind an auto parts store.

Deborah Sue Culwell, 54, was busted at her Coachella, Calif., home around 5:30 p.m. by Riverside County Animal Services Commander Chris Mayer, the department announced.

The alleged puppy dumper faces up to seven counts of felony animal cruelty for heartlessly tossing the pooches — believed to be just days-old Terrier mixes — near the trash behind a Coachella Napa Auto Parts last Thursday.

A store employee later found the pooches in scorching 90-degree temperatures and contacted Riverside County Animal Services.
