Two men have been arrested following the discovery of hundreds of dogs stowed in a warehouse in Texas. According to multiple sources, 270 dogs and one cat were found living in deplorable conditions inside of a warehouse in Los Fresnos.
Authorities responded to the warehouse after receiving reports of dogs barking – deputies with the Cameron County Sheriff’s Office describe the interior of the warehouse as “terrible.” Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio stated, “Never in my lifetime have I seen anything like this.” Adding, “It would make anybody sick.”
Inside of the warehouse, dogs were discovered crammed into cages which were stacked on top of each other – there was urine and feces, no food or water, and many of the dogs appeared to be suffering from malnutrition and other signs of neglect.
The men arrested have been identified as Mark Anthony Trevino, 29, and Steven Clark Woodington, 59 – they are facing charges for cruelty to non-livestock animals.
The huge seizure of dogs has shut down the Cameron County Animal Shelter – no animals will be taken in until the situation has “stabilized.”
