We’ve all heard the dangers of giving away pets online and this man found by police in Washington proved just why that is.
The man had been collecting animals from Craigslist and other sites, claiming to give the animals (dogs, guinea pigs, rabbits and rats) a “good home.” The animals that were originally family pets, were deprived of light, food and water. Many of the animals were killed and eaten.
A group of dogs were found in the attic in total darkness with no beds, food or water. Deputy Prosecutor Christen Anton Peters said it was the most disturbing case they had ever seen.
The surviving dogs have all been adopted out and the rabbits and rats will be looking for new homes shortly.
