WELAKA, Fla. -- A woman has been arrested on animal cruelty charges after police say a dog was allegedly found malnourished earlier this week.

About 3:30 p.m. Monday, the Putnam County Sheriff's Office Animal Services got information regarding a possible malnourished dog in the 100 block of Beecher Springs Road.

The investigation found a passer-by saw a dead dog lying near a trash collection site along with six puppies, three of which were also dead. The Good Samaritan took the three living puppies home to care for them.

The investigation found the pit bull/hound mix and her puppies, may have been neglected and/or abused.

On Tuesday, Deondra Milledge was arrested on five counts of animal cruelty. Her bond was set at $5,020.

This person deserves as much punishment allowed and more if possible. Anyone that harms dogs, cats or any other animal should have a place set aside just for them. Like an Alcatraz out in the middle of a shark infested area. Air drop them rations in the form of MRE's, water and nothing more. It is a depraved mind that does stuff like this. Then make a place for those that harm children. There are few things that I have compassion for. Children, animals, veterans and our seniors. I pray each day for these.
