Couple accused of keeping dozens of animals in squalor

Dozens of animals living in squalor seized from couple’s home – some were stolen

Dozens of animals, some apparently stolen, were found living in squalor at a Wisconsin couple’s residence in Marathon County. According to the Humane Society of Marathon County, the shelter worked hand-in-hand with the local Sheriff’s Department to remove 24 animals, including 20 dogs, three cats and a pig, from a house in the Town of Harrison.

According to WSAW News, the authorities arrested Randy Diels Jr., 37, and 43-year-old Kimberly Lawrence. the couple is facing 20 counts related to the mistreatment of animals. The conditions at the residence were deplorable – according to the news agency, the animals were forced to live in filthy cages that were so small that they couldn’t stand up. One puppy, just three weeks of age, was in such poor condition that it had to be humanely euthanized.

According to the Wausau Daily Herald, four of the dogs found at the residence did not belong to the couple – the true owner has been identified. Diels and Lawrence were booked into the Marathon County Jail.

According to the shelter, the seized animals will be placed up for adoption.

    I can’t imagine the fear of the dogs who were confined in such a small space that they couldn’t stand up. That had to be excruciating, too, because their muscles would atrophy. RIP to the little puppy that didn’t make it.

    Shoot them between the eyes and be done with it. Void of all feelings for anything and belong on an island with other crazy people and let them fight among themselves.

    And more than likely these two will never get the punishment they deserve – they should be forced to live in those nasty too small cages and left to wallow in their own filth. They deserve it.
