SPRINGTOWN (June 2, 2014) Tammy Green Douglas, 44, has been charged with cruelty to non-livestock animals after her nursing dog was found shot to death in a cage along with 10 blood-caked puppies along a rural road.

Douglas was arrested early Sunday morning and was later freed on $3,000 bond.

The sheriff's office says Douglas told deputies she grew agitated with the shepherd mix and shot the dog in the cage near her residence in Springtown, about 25 miles northwest of Fort Worth.

She told investigators she then left the mother and puppies along the road where they were discovered last week.

The Humane Society of the United States offered a reward of as much as $5,000 for information that led to an arrest and conviction in the case.

A school bus driver made the grim in Springtown, northwest of Fort Worth, Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said.

The mother had been shot in the head.

Angels & Outlaws 2nd Chance Bully Ranch in Hico is caring for the puppies.
