According to Thursday's WPXI News, two puppies in New Eagle, Pa., were injured when a mother, who left her toddler home alone with the pups, flew into a rage after the child was injured.

Last weekend, Kimberly and Danny Watts had left their two-year-old daughter home alone with the puppies and during the time that they were away, the child sustained a minor wound when one of the 8-week-old pups jumped on her.

According to the police, Kimberly Watts admitted to repeatedly stabbing one of the puppies with a knife - the other puppy was thrown against a wall hard enough to break a leg. Watts initially claimed that she has "saved" her child from one of the puppies, but later admitted that when the puppy ran from her after being yelled at, she grabbed a knife and proceeded to stab the pup five times.

According to Officer Brian Tempest, the pups were not aggressive - they were merely behaving like puppies. He noted that despite the serious injuries and pain, the pups were friendly, stating:

Both were injured and very friendly. Puppies like to jump and play. That is all the one puppy was doing,”

Miraculously, the two puppies survived the abuse - both were removed from the home and are now being cared for by a humane officer. Two other dogs were also removed from the couple's home.

The child received treatment for her wound and she has also been removed from the couple's care.
