Animals Seized From “Puppy Mill” In Parker County
FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – More than two dozen dogs and other animals have been seized from a property in North Texas after being found with afflictions including intestinal parasites, untreated wounds, malnourishment and dehydration.
Staff members at the Human Society of North Texas told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that the property in northwest Parker County appeared to have been a “puppy mill.”
Parker County sheriff’s office Deputy Danie Huffman says animal control officers got a tip on Monday that about 150 animals were being kept in squalid conditions. Animal control officers then checked the property before calling in the humane society.
Tammy Roberts, the humane society’s interim director, says that many of the animals had been removed by the time they arrived Tuesday. She says they’re trying to locate those animals.
