Parker County deputies arrested 44-year-old Tammy Green Douglas Sunday on charges of cruelty to a nonlivestock animal after the news went out on social media that authorities were looking for a suspect in the shooting, according to the Star-Telegram.

Authorities said that Douglas told them that she shot her 4-year-old heeler/shepherd mix, Aowa, in the head near her home with a 9 mm handgun, and then left the body in a cage with the 10 newborn puppies on Raley Road.

“Aowa was discovered early Thursday morning, May 28, 2014, inside a cage with her puppies nursing her deceased body, partially in the roadway on Raley Road in Springtown,” a statement from the Parker County Sheriff’s Office explained on Sunday.

“To a normal, caring human, this is an incomprehensible act,” Sheriff Larry Fowler noted. “I can’t imagine what the suspect thought theses puppies did in order to warrant her actions. Animal cruelty can never be justified.”

Douglas was released on $3,000 bond after being booked into the Parker County Jail.

The puppies were placed in the custody of Angels and Outlaws 2nd Chance Bully Ranch in Hico. Caretakers told KTVT that one of the puppies had died by Sunday afternoon.

  • The judge is the true criminal here. Don’t release her. Nearly all psychopaths start killing using animals–Bundy, Dahmer… The judge be damned

  • I say she needs to get life in prison. If you murder a human uou will get life so need to make sure the laws are the same for murdering a dog or animal. I really Hope she rots in Hell

  • There is a special hell for these sorts of people and not even alleged mental illness will get her off!

  • What’s next – a nursing mother? Animal cruelty is the first step towards violence towards humans.

  • But in McCullough county Texas it’s okay for a man to step out his door and shoot any animal. Not to kill them but to make them suffer. This POS shot my cat and let him lay there and suffer.for chasing birds..I had to take him to the to put him asleep. 2 months ago and they (sheriff dept.) have not done a thing…guess it’s all about whether.

  • THIS LEAVES ME SPEECHLESS….AND GOES ABOVE THE ANIMAL ABUSE LAWS AND I CAN’T BELIEVE SHE HAS SUCH A MEASLY BOND OF ONLY 3,000.00 AND IS ALREADY OUT ROAMING THE STREET!!! SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH 11 COUNTS OF ANIMAL CRUELTY…ONE FOR EACH PUP AND THE MOTHER, THEN ADDED A CHARGE FOR KILLING THE POOR MOM. HER HEAD SHOT SHOULD BE POSTED IN ALL PET STORES, ANIMAL SHELTERS AND PRIVATE BREEDERS AND SHOULD NEVER…(WISH I COULD MAKE THE FONT HUGE)NEVER NEVER…EVER…BE ALLOWED ANOTHER ANIMAL AGAIN!!!!!!! MAKES ME SICK!!!

  • An eye for an eye. A shot in the head for a shot in the head. Then leave the skanky bitch in the side of the road.
    I hope the Karma trains runs over you, backs up and runs over you again.
