Waveland police say a Picayune woman turned herself in on an animal-cruelty charge after learning officials had released a surveillance picture that allegedly showed her dumping a litter of puppies behind a business.
Officials say the woman's name has not been released because of fear for her safety.
The Sun Herald reports a surveillance picture showed a woman get out of a blue car Monday behind a store on Mississippi 603.
Police say another picture showed an adult dog chasing after the car as the woman left.
The dog and seven puppies were discovered about 8:41 p.m.. Police say four of the puppies were dead. The remaining dogs were taken to an animal shelter.
Police officials say the woman was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of animal cruelty.
