Three puppies were found dead and burned in a barrel during the weekend, and for that, two people who admitted using meth earlier, were in jail Tuesday.
Melissa Woodard, 38, and Christoper Apala, 33, were arrested Saturday on suspicion of animal cruelty charges.
In a jailhouse interview Tuesday, Apala said he found the puppies suffering on Saturday and decided the “humane” thing to do was to kill them.
“I hit each one time in the head with a stick,” Apala said. “And I then put them in the barrel and burned them.”
Apala and Woodard both admitted that they smoked marijuana and did meth prior to Saturday, but they were not high on that day.
“I can’t believe I’m being charged with this,” Apala said Tuesday.
