The Albany, N.Y., man who was implicated, and charged, in the case of the so-called "Railroad Puppies," is facing new charges after dogs were discovered on Saturday evening, alone in the back of a U-Haul truck, during frigid weather.
According to Sunday's Times-Union, Anthony Walker, 30, has been charged with four misdemeanor counts for torturing and injuring animals, after dogs were discovered in the truck which was parked outside of a Super 8 motel.
According to the report, the dogs had been left in the vehicle for an extended period of time while outside temperatures were below freezing.
The rescued dogs were in poor condition and were transferred to an emergency veterinary clinic for treatment.
Walker is also believed to be involved in the case of the three pit bull puppies who were found along railroad tracks back on Sept. 8. The puppies, who were under a month of age, were in poor condition and initially, it was believed that they had somehow been nailed to the tracks.
According to the Times-Union publication, those initial assumptions may not have been correct, stating:
"what occurred that evening does not appear to have happened the way it was initially portrayed."
Walker is facing a misdemeanor charge for the abandonment of a disabled animal in the Railroad Puppy case.
