“Parker County does not have an animal problem,” said Sheriff Larry Fowler, “We have a people problem. It’s hard to imagine that someone would be so cruel as to execute any animal, but to kill a dog with nursing babies, and leave such a gory picture, is beyond human imagination.”
The puppies were released to the care of Angels & Outlaws 2nd Chance Bully Ranch in Hico on Wednesday. The organization’s director said the puppies have been evaluated by a veterinarian and are being hand-nursed until they are healthy and weaned so they can be adopted.
