Woman saves puppies thrown into Halifax County creek


A nurse who lives on Lake Gaston on Monday saved six puppies that someone had thrown into a nearby creek, according to Halifax County Animal Control.Cynthia Hux was walking on Weaver's Chapel Road when she heard strange noises coming from a nearby creek, animal control officer Robert Richardson said. She spotted a large plastic bag in the creek and found nine pit bull puppies inside, three of which were dead, Richardson said.
Hux pulled the puppies from the water and out of the bag and cared for them until animal control officers arrived. The puppies were then turned over to Hope Animal Rescue, Richardson said.
The puppies won't be available for adoption for several weeks because of their age, he said.
Local authorities are investigating the case.
