PHOENIX - Phoenix police are looking for the occupants of a tow truck that tossed a family of dogs out into a busy street.
A witness, Rosie Garcia, tells ABC15 that she saw it as it was happening.
"They pulled up and put their hazards on and dropped them out of the truck," she said. "The mother dog got hit right away and we rushed to get the puppies."
It happened near 52nd Avenue and McDowell Road.
Garcia flagged down an officer who helped round up four puppies. The mother dog was not found, and there may be other puppies that ran off as well.
The dogs which appeared to be a lab mix were taken to the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control Shelter. Those four were not seriously injured.
