Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A Las Vegas couple was arrested in Santa Fe, Texas after allegedly abandoning their dogs in the back of a moving truck.
36-year-old Joseph Bakkedahl and his wife, 44-year-old Kristine Fisher were charged with animal cruelty.
Police said they got a call about an intoxicated man and woman who left a moving truck behind at a business there.
When investigators opened the truck, they found four small dogs in dirty crates with no food or water.
