SAN ANTONIO -- A woman is facing animal cruelty charges after police say she dragged a dog to death.
The incident happened on Wednesday on Old Highway 90 and Southwest 36th Street. The woman, 44-year-old Herlinda Trigo, was arrested after a witness called police. According to her arrest report, the witness noticed Trigo dragging a dog attached to her truck and repeatedly tried to get her to pull over. The witness said she instead yelled back a profanity indicating she didn't care.
When police caught up with her, she allegedly admitted to dragging the dog and dumping its body.
Police say the dog had just given birth to 10 puppies.
