Dogs held inside of an utter house of horrors had resorted to eating each other – according to KXII News, the horrific situation was discovered in Grant, Oklahoma, after a man emailed the Choctaw County Sheriff’s Office about buying right-a ways to put up signs along a highway.
Choctaw County Sheriff Terry Park explained to KXII:
We received an email from a man who was trying to buy right-a-ways to put up the big signs along the highway. He went to this residence south of Grant, off of highway 271 and discovered dozens and dozens of dogs in a despicable environment.”
Over 50 dogs were discovered inside of an otherwise vacant house – the conditions inside of the structure were “shocking.” Dogs were living inside of stacked cages – feces and urine from the dogs in the top cages fell onto the helpless animals below.
Dead dogs, and evidence that dogs had been eating the carcasses, were also found inside of the house – Sheriff Park stated, “Pieces of bodies of little dogs that the other dogs were eating on and skeletons and skulls of smaller dogs that had died.”
The woman responsible for the despicable situation is expected to face charges.
All of the surviving dogs were removed from the house and they are receiving care from the Boswell Pet Rescue. An update to area residents who are hopeful that their missing dogs might be part of the dogs found in the house was made on July 21:
To everyone who is asking about the rescued dogs wanting to know if their lost dog is among them or about adopting one please be patient. Until all legal issues are resolved, medical and health issues are addressed, none of these pets will be released. There were 3 Yorkshire Terriers, 3 large Huskie Mixes and the rest are Dachshund or Dachshund mixes. This appears to be a situation of hoarding. We will update about these dogs in the coming days so please be patient. Donations to help care for these pets would be greatly appreciated and volunteer help is always a blessing. Thank you all for caring.
Anyone hoping to help assist the rescue agency in their efforts to care for all of these dogs can make a donation at this fundraiser.
