In Holiday, Florida, the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office arrested a woman alleged to have locked 46 cats and a dog in a hot U-Haul with no food or water.
Acting on repeated complaints from neighbors, authorities arrived at the residence located on Dixie Garden Loop on Saturday and found the locked U-Haul. When opened the cats were discovered locked in stacked cages. Most of the cats were in poor condition and were found sitting in their own urine and feces. There was no air-conditioning in the back of the truck – the heat was stifling. More cats were found in the cab of the truck as well as the dog.
Karen tuttle-Kunnmann, 61, was arrested and charged with 47 counts of animal cruelty. Bond has been set at $5,000 for each count.
Pasco County Animal Control are caring for the animals.
