A passerby was taken aback to see a suspicious hand, holding a bagful of puppies, peek out of a moving car. Before the passerby could do anything, the puppies were tossed out to die on the cold freeway in Spring, Texas, while the car drove off.

The concerned passerby alerted Harris County Animal Cruelty Investigators, and investigator Michael Allan rushed to rescue the puppies. He was shocked to see eight cold and starving puppies cramped together in a pile.
