- Oklahoma, USA -
The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office is looking into a disturbing case of animal cruelty.
Deputy Leonard Hills received a call and responded to a trailer where he found a mama dog in the back room who was scared and did not want to come out.
He then found nine live puppies and two others were in such a bad shape that they did not survive.
He said the puppies were crying and whining.
The 4-weeks-old puppies were emaciated, dehydrated, and had worms.
Deputy Leonard Hills said in a news release that “ owner” of the puppies had been arrested the week before and asked friends to look after them.
The friends found the situation overwhelming and reached out to the sheriff’s office.
The furbabies were found in a filthy trailer without any food or water.
They are now in the care of the shelter “Street Dog Rescue and Recovery.”
The poor souls have been cleaned up, medicated, fed and are recovering.
The shelter wrote in a Facebook post: “They’ve been upgraded from ‘poor’ to ‘good’ and are now at their amazing foster’s home! They are on medications, special food and have also been dewormed.”
The sheriff’s office is investigating and may present the case to the district attorney’s office for charges.
