A passerby was taken aback to see a suspicious hand, holding a bagful of puppies, peek out of a moving car. Before the passerby could do anything, the puppies were tossed out to die on the cold freeway in Spring, Texas, while the car drove-off.

The concerned passerby alerted Harris County Animal Cruelty Investigators, and investigator Michael Allan rushed to rescue the puppies. He was shocked to see eight cold and starving puppies cramped together in a pile.

These innocent babies hadn’t even opened their eyes yet. The puppies were saved from the horrors of the busy freeway, and taken to the hospital. But sadly, one of them didn’t survive. The other siblings are being bottle-fed, and kept warm in soft blankets.

The puppies will be placed in a temporary foster, till their health stabilizes. Meanwhile, a cruelty report has been filed, and investigators are on the look-out for the perpetrator of this inhumane act. Charges of animal cruelty await this sadistic person.

Animal cruelty investigators have urged people to keep an eye out for such cases of animal cruelty or abandonment. Any such incident can be reported at (832) 927-PAWS, or online via Harris County Animal Cruelty Taskforce.
