Eight dogs were seized in the east as part of an animal cruelty case.
The Craven County Sheriff's office and Humane Society of the U.S. assisted in the seizure of 6 pit bull terrier adults and 2 newborn puppies from a Havelock property. The sheriff's department says the dogs were severely emaciated and had no clean drinking water or food.
There is a suspect in the case, but no one in custody. The HSUS is providing the dogs with the vet care before relocating them to a temporary shelter.
The Humane Society of the U.S. has a temporary shelter at the Craven County fairgrounds for animals displaced after Irene.
