A complaint of animal cruelty led police to find a dog and four puppies suffering from severe neglect. The 10-week-old puppies are recovering from worms and Sarcoptic mange -- an itchy infestation of parasites causing the skin condition commonly known as scabies. Scioto County Humane Agents picked up the dogs from their owner Saturday.
The animals are now being treated in Gahanna.
"When neglect goes to this extreme, then it is animal cruelty. These animals have suffered for quite a few weeks," Teresa Landon of the Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
The owners are now facing charges of animal cruelty in Scioto County.
