Students Admit To Throwing Puppy Off Of Tower In Texas County

Two students at Houston High School are facing multiple charges after admitting to throwing a puppy off of a tower in Texas County.

Authorities say Taylor DeWolfe, 17, and another teenager admitted to driving to the Highway 38 fire lookout tower and throwing the puppy 100-feet off to its death.

DeWolfe has been charged for animal abuse, trespassing, and tampering with physical evidence. He also faces a charge of stealing after admitting the two had stolen some County Road signs.

Court documents say deputies were called to investigate after a woman reported one of the teenagers involved was bragging about it at school.

Records show DeWolfe moved the dead puppy from the ditch and to a different spot after other students found out.
