Police catch Louisiana woman attempting to abandon puppies in woods


FRANKLINTON, La. — A police officer caught a woman trying to abandon several puppies in a secluded area Monday.

Franklinton police said in a Facebook post that an officer on patrol noticed a suspicious vehicle speed away from a secluded area. He then saw several puppies on the ground and radioed the information to another officer who was able to stop the vehicle.

Police said Rita Mooney, of Franklinton, admitted that she had left the puppies in the hopes that someone would find them.

Mooney was charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty and released until her August court date.

The puppies were turned over to animal control and will be available for adoption soon.
