A dog breeder in Virgina has been charged with numerous counts of animal abuse.
10 dogs and one cat were found dead inside the house and one vet said that some of the bodies were so badly decomposed that they must have been there for more than a year. Animal control officers also seized a poodle from the house that had bite marks on the bottom and cataracts on one eye. They also found a baby goat that looked like it had been in a dog fight and a Sheltie covered with mange. Authorities also said that the breeder tried to poison the poodle with two dozen ground up pain pills.
The breeder was fined $250 for each count which totaled to almost $3,000. The judge said he would suspend the fines if she would agree to a three-dog limit.
