Dead Dogs Found In Home


A call from concerned neighbors over a strong odor led Carteret County Animal Control officers to a sad scene. Officers say they found two dead dogs in cages inside a home in Newport. Officers say they also found one dog still alive, with no food or water. The animal was taken to the Humane Society's animal shelter for care. The owners of the dogs face animal cruelty charges. The Carteret County Sheriffs Office is trying to locate them.
