Puppies thrown over seawall in Texas by man bent on 'turning them into soldiers'
Firefighters rescued the crying pups and placed the creatures with animal control.
KFDM-TV reports the man who tossed the animals on Sunday was heard saying he was "turning them into soldiers." A bystander noticed the abandoned puppies and summoned help.
Pat Lavergnec with Port Arthur Animal Control says the puppies, with health problems such as mange, were at the shelter today and available for adoption. She described them as a retriever mix.
The owner of the dogs, who was not immediately located, could face animal cruelty charges.
