Anthony Walker of Albany, N.Y., has been arrested for his part in disheartening case of animal cruelty which left three puppies abandoned, and nailed, to train tracks.
According to Thursday's News 10, the 30-year-old man was arrested on Jan. 14.
At this time, according to the Albany County District Attorney's office, Walker is charged with a misdemeanor, for the abandonment of a disabled animal.
The trio was discovered by a railway worker back on Sept. 8, 2012.
The puppies, estimated to be just under a month of age, had been nailed by their rear feet to the tracks. The severely injured and dehydrated pups were rushed to the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society for care.
Tragically, one of the puppies died due to the severity of her injuries.
One of the surviving puppies, named "Hudson," lost a limb, but received a prosthetic leg in November. The other puppy, named "Pearl," lost two toes, but has otherwise made a remarkable recovery
The surviving puppies have completely recovered and have been adopted by new families not far from the humane society which took them in.
