Authorities have launched an animal cruelty investigation after reports of starving dogs in a Llano, California neighborhood were brought to the attention of animal control and sheriff deputies on Tuesday morning. Elizabeth Brown, who lives near the subject property told police two dogs arrived at her property on Monday ravenously hungry.
According to Brown, the Labrador retriever and a German shepherd then returned on Tuesday looking for food again. She took both dogs to the Palmdale Animal Control. Officers located the ten acre property where the dogs had been living and disclosed an unknown number of caged dogs that were undernourished and living in horrible conditions. At least four dogs were found dead on the property.
The surviving dogs are being treated at a nearby veterinarian. No information has been released if the owner of the dogs have been found.
