San Antonio, TX (The Weekly Vice) - Herlinda Trigo, a 44-year-old Texas woman was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly tied a dog to her truck bumper and then sped off, dragging the dog to its death.
According to police, a man called 911 Wednesday to report that he was following a pickup truck that had a dog tied to its back bumper.
The man pulled up alongside the truck and attempted to motion to the driver that a dog was attached to the bumper, however the lady inside the truck cussed at him and sped off.
The man told investigators that he saw the dog's snap and saw it die. The woman then reportedly showed the animal's carcass to a friend who laughed.
Police later stopped Trigo and questioned her about the dog. Trigo told the officer that she tied the dog to the bumper by mistake because the dog had recently had a litter of puppies.
She then led officers to a field where she had disposed of the dog. The dog still had a rope around its neck and obvious signs that it had been dragged.
Trigo was booked into jail and charged with animal cruelty. She was released after posting a $2,000 bond.
