There is an awful story today out of Oklahoma City. Here’s a little bit:
An Oklahoma City man was arrested on complaints of cruelty to animals and neglect by a caretaker after the home he shared with his mother and nine dogs was found filled with animal waste.
A home at 2812 NW 16 was condemned after it was found full of animal waste, officials said. One woman was removed from the home and a man arrested on complaints of animal cruelty and neglect by a caretaker.
David Pilcher, 44, was arrested Wednesday after police, DHS and county health officials went to the home at 2812 NW 16. His mother, 64, was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
I asked the reporter about the dogs, which are reportedly pit bull terriers, and he said Animal Welfare has taken them. We aren’t sure yet what has happened to the dogs or what will happen to them eventually. We’ll keep you up to date as we know.
