Puppies drowned by Moultrie burglary suspect

MOULTRIE, Ga. — Police in south Georgia say the suspect in a residential burglary apparently drowned three puppies inside the house before fleeing the scene.

A Moultrie man who returned home over the weekend and found evidence of a burglary eventually stumbled upon the bodies of the puppies.

Authorities say they were drowned in a large trash can in the bathroom that had been filled with water.

Police say they have identified a person of interest but have not disclosed additional details.

Authorities say the suspect will likely be charged with criminal damage to property and three felony counts of animal cruelty.

Maybe they should stick his head in a trash can filled with water so he can feel first hand what those poor puppies went through. Sick cold hearted b@stard!

I'd rather see them spayed or neutered.

If the mother dog had done it we would just call it her "choice".

I hope they find the person responsible for doing this and charge him with animal cruelty in addition to other charges.

Wonder if this is a warning, about like a Horse Head in the bed, or a Pig's head on the porch, or a fish wrapped in Newspaper? Is this gang related? Or is someone saying he better keep his mouth shut about something or he will be next?

It's really sad on several different levels.
