Woman who allegedly threw 7 newborn puppies into Southern California dumpster arrested [View all]

Coachella, Calif. -- A woman has been arrested for allegedly throwing a bag containing seven newborn puppies into a Southern California dumpster.

Riverside County Animal Services arrested 54-year-old Deborah Culwell on Monday at her Coachella home, reports CBS Los Angeles.

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.

Investigators say the bag was sealed and cavalierly tossed into the bin, causing Animal Services to term the case one of "willful act of animal cruelty," according to CBS L.A.

A man rummaging for recyclables found the dogs within an hour.

"The Good Samaritan played a major role in saving these puppies' lives," Riverside County Animal Service Commander Chris Mayer said. "His actions were humane and heroic."

Authorities say they found 30 more dogs at Culwell's home, way more than allowed without a kennel permit, Riverside County Animal Services chief John Welsh told CBS News. They were impounded and will be cared for at the Coachella Valley Animal Campus in Thousand Palms, he said. Welch had no information about their condition.
