SEARCY, AR (KAIT/KATV) - A central Arkansas man pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges after dumping puppies from a car window.

According to KATV in Little Rock, Allen C. Wood pleaded guilty to the charges.

A Searcy resident saw it happen and said it made him sick to see the puppies roll down the hill and almost go into the river.

The witness took the puppies to the Humane Society of Searcy where they were treated for malnourishment and fleas.

The shelter told KATV this isn't the first time they've heard of people abandoning animals.

In fact, the shelter is experiencing overcrowding.
