In a case of animal cruelty, a woman killed three dogs allegedly by poisoning the canines Wednesday. The incident took place in the Indian state of Telangana.

According to local media Asia News International, the woman worked as a supervisor at a farmhouse. She was fired by the owner earlier this year. Even after losing her job, the woman made several attempts to visit the farmhouse, however, she was not allowed to enter the premises.

Local police said the woman recently got access to the farmhouse and was seen feeding biscuits to the three dogs. 

"The three dogs were later found dead," police said, adding that the woman was accused of feeding "some poison along with biscuits to the dogs, which led to their death."

Police have registered a case against the woman, who was identified only by her first name Padma. The cause of death of the dogs will be known after an autopsy is conducted on the animals. 

It remains unclear if the woman was arrested by the police.

In January, at least 16 puppies were found dead, wrapped inside plastic bags at the parking lot of a hospital in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata, West Bengal. In the incident, bodies of the puppies were found in disposable bags at NRS Medical College and Hospital. Local newspaper the Times of India reported that an adult dog was also tied up in a bag and was bleeding profusely.

Eyewitnesses told police that two women were seen carrying a plastic bag and had dumped it at the parking area.
