A woman has been arrested for allegedly throwing seven newborn puppies into a Southern California dumpster.
Riverside County authorities arrested 54-year-old Deborah Culwell on Monday at her Coachella home.
Surveillance video showed a woman get out of a car and drop a bag containing the pups into a dumpster behind an auto parts store on Thursday. A man rummaging for recyclables found the dogs.
The video is from a nearby auto body shop, CBS Palm Springs affiliate KESQ reports.
According to CBS News, all seven puppies managed to survive after being abandoned under such conditions and are now under care from a Southern California-based rescue organization.
Authorities say they found another 30 dogs at Culwell's home. They were impounded.
Culwell could face charges of animal cruelty. She remained jailed and it's unclear whether she has an attorney.
