Natasha Stidman was driving to work on Thursday when she witnessed a horrific sight. The vehicle in front of her was tossing objects out of the car window. It took her a second to recognize that the three thrown objects were, in fact, puppies.
"I'd seen something splatter on the road, and I realized that it was animals being thrown out. I slammed my brakes and I turned around. There was one puppy alive laying in the middle of the road, and I stopped traffic to get him," she told 14 News.
She picked up the one surviving puppy and drove to the nearest veterinarian clinic in Tyler, Texas, that she could find. The puppy had a swollen jaw and injured leg and was treated by the veterinarian.
Natasha is disbelieving that people could be so cruel. "I have animals and I would never do anything like that. If they didn't want [the puppies], they could have taken them to the pound. Maybe they would have a chance," Natasha said.
Because Natasha stopped for the pups, she could only make out that the vehicle was an old silver pickup truck. "I was crying hysterically because I'm an animal lover and all I thought was, 'I've got to see if these puppies are still alive,'" said Natasha.
Thanks to Natasha's actions, that one puppy has a second chance. The veterinarian who treated the puppy said he may have already found the puppy a home.
