Woman Caught On Tape Throwing Seven Puppies Into Dumpster At Coachella

Woman Caught On Tape Throwing Seven Puppies Into Dumpster At Coachella

The authorities are trying to recognize the woman who threw the puppies in a dumpster when it was 90 degrees Farenheit outside.

A woman in Coachella recently abandoned seven puppies in a hot dumpster. The puppies were all put together in one bag which the woman threw inside the dumpster in Coachella Valley, California. The incident was caught on the security cameras around the dumpster which was placed around the corner of a road. The authorities are currently trying to identify the woman and track her down. The dumpster was located not too far away from the Coachella music festival. The incident that took place on Thursday and was caught on camera shows the woman pull up in Jeep and look around for any passersby for a brief moment before placing her puppies inside the dumpster. The puppies were not just in a plastic bag that traps heat but were inside a dumpster that was placed in a spot with no shade whatsoever and the temperature outside was 90-degree Fahrenheit. 

The dumpster was located behind Napa Auto Parts store in Coachella.  Luckily, the puppies were discovered not very long after they were abandoned. A passerby found the puppies while rummaging through the dumpster and informed the store and the police, while the store employee contacted Riverside County Animal Service and informed them that there were seven newborn puppies in the dumpster. The puppies were abandoned around 1 pm and the police arrived at the scene an hour later. 


"The Good Samaritan played a major role in saving these puppies' lives," Riverside County Animal Service Commander Chris Mayer said, as reported by CBS News. "His actions were humane and heroic". The authorities pointed out that it was 90 degrees in Coachella Valley that afternoon when the newborn puppies were found. If the authorities had failed to find the puppies quickly, they newborns could have died due to the heat. The puppies were said to be around three or four days old at most. 



The dogs are terrier mixes. All seven of them have been rescued and have not suffered any injuries whatsoever. They are currently in the care of a rescue organization that is based in South Carolina and are being nursed to full health. The Mayor condemned the woman for abandoning the newborn puppies saying that there was no good enough explanation for why she did what she did. Such cruel treatment of animals is not tolerated by the authorities and the woman is likely to face heavy charges once found. 



"There is no excuse for dumping puppies," the Mayor said. "Especially in today's age when we or other shelters would be willing to get these animals to foster parents or rescue partners. This was a shameful act." According to the police, the woman can be seen with some amount of clarity in the security footage that was captured. Authorities have claimed that they are currently on the lookout for the woman. People on social media are outraged by the incident and believe that the woman should be given a severe punishment when she is found. 



Animal cruelty is something that should not be tolerated by anyone. It often goes unnoticed for a very long time. In many cases, the people abusing the animals happen to be the owners itself and get away with it. There are many forms of animal abuse from physically beating the animals to mistreating them and not giving them proper nutrition, to ignoring them and not giving them the attention they want, and verbally abusing them to even abandoning them. These are just the most common kinds of abuse. If you ever come across any such incidents or suspect someone abusing animals, please report to the police immediately. 



"People are sick. Hope these sweethearts aren’t traumatized and I pray the mommy is ok." one user tweeted. "Animal abuse should be a FELONY nationwide," wrote another. "Cruelty like this cannot go unpunished. Psychos often start their sadistic reign of terror on small animals before moving onto people. This heartless, evil b— has a very special place in hell awaiting her for what she did to the pups."  "I'm hoping info can be taken from photos to identify her. Maybe the license plate was caught from another angle as she drove up or away from the dumpster," a third person commented. "I'm sure that mama dog is sick with worry in addition to swollen, painful tits... and possibly other horrible treatment."
