    It is absolutely apalling that no one noticed or did so and did not report the "animal" situation at this home. I was horrified to hear of the 100 dead animals plus the 200 plus still alive. I saw the little freckle face cocker spaniel on the news and my heart broke.This was just one sad face I saw. I have a cocker and they are the most loving, loyal, caring little dogs. How can there be no charges brought against this individual when so many helpless little animals'have been taken. No matter how you look at it; this is an obvious case of abuse and/or neglect. I am sure there would be many more if the authorities had not intervened. Thank God it was now and not later. Everyone of these animals deserves better. A loving, caring home with proper food and shelter, along with proper medical care is not too much to ask for. Throw in some toys, a bath here and there, and some human comanionship. It is not too late!!!!!
