(Newser) – The Coachella festival has wrapped up for 2019, and this year, perhaps the biggest Coachella headline of April had nothing to do with music. Instead: puppy dumping. As has been reported at NBC News and pretty much everywhere else from coast to coast, a woman in Coachella, Calif., was caught on video putting a plastic bag with seven newborn puppies into a dumpster on a hot day. Luckily, a man rummaging through the garbage bin behind an auto parts store found the bag within 15 minutes and brought it inside the store. They called authorities, and the puppies are now doing OK. Police have since arrested 54-year-old Deborah Sue Culwell of Coachella, who faces seven counts of animal cruelty. Some details, including video links:
