Abuser names unreleased
Glynn County police officer Peter Farrick was called to investigate a complaint on Wildsmith Drive in October.
"A lady had called in and said her kids had found six live puppies in a trash can," Farrick said.
"The children were waiting for their school bus when they overheard the cries of the puppies coming from their neighbor's yard."
The woman followed her children to the garbage can, opened the top and found six wriggling, newborn puppies inside.
She took the puppies to her house and put them in a cardboard box, making sure they were comfortable with a warm blanket.
She didn't get them all, though. After digging through old soda cans, pizza boxes and soiled tissues, Farrick and another officer called to investigate uncovered seven more puppies, all of them still alive.
"It was disgusting," said Farrick, a self-described animal lover. "I don't know what would motivate people to do something like that to an animal."
The puppies ended up being euthanized because of sickness and poor health.
The case involving the garbage can-puppies will go to court in mid-March. The owner is charged with 11 counts of animal cruelty, one for each puppy.
Stewart and Farrick will be there to testify.
