150 Dogs Found Dead In Freezers At Home

Police say about 150 dead dogs were found packed in freezers in the basement of a Michigan home where more than 110 live dogs, mostly Chihuahuas, were rescued this week.

Investigators in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn say the two-story house is littered with feces and trash. The 54-year-old man who lives there has been taken to a hospital for observation. Police say the man appeared confused and disoriented.

Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad said Friday that 112 live dogs have been removed from the home, and police believe about five more may be hiding inside. He says a criminal investigation is under way.

The rescued dogs were taken to a shelter, where many residents have donated food and filled out pet adoption applications.

    "the smart guy" apparently isn't so smart. First of all, I never said I didn't believe in hell. I do, but there are no reserved places for people who do certain things. Although some people who speak out of school on issues they only think they understand probably deserve their own little corner. You have six lines on the screen saying absolutely nothing of value because you didn't know what you were talking about to begin with. Which makes you pretty lame. Dead doggies are not as gross as stupid people claiming to be smart or nasty animals living inside ones home. Especially chihuahuas and people who open their pieholes without digesting the facts, both tend to be carpet butt-wipers. STOP wasting my time.

    Thanks cook you are right. Can I get egg or dog roll? I went to other countries to learn how to prepare food.

    This information I found online. The eating of dog meat has a history in China which dates back thousands of years. Dog meat has long been thought by some to have medicinal properties, and is especially popular in winter months as it is believed to generate heat and promote bodily warmth. Also, dogs have occasionally been eaten as an emergency food supply. Contrary to some popular beliefs, the Chinese usually only eat dogs raised specifically for meat, not those raised as pets. The dogs are slaughtered between 6 and 12 months of age. Pass the Soy Sauce.

    ok people. let me explain things for you. 1. this dead not story has nothing to do with religion. big mouth christian crybabys and anti god crybabies are almost the same general type of loser. just take the story for what its worth. interesting, gross, and somehow a bit funny in a sick sort of way. everyone likes a good crazy cat lady story. ive seen first hand these psychos who keep tons of pets and have poop everywhere. really weird. 2. tad dont try to use this website or any other to let people know you dont believe in hell. nobody really cares. just cuz your life sucks dosnt mean much to me. hell does sound like a crazy idea, but you never know. i dont think i buy the whole concept but man, tad... you are pretty lame. dead doggies is gross.

    TAD: You and I seem cross legged for some reason. As for the hell issue it's the only way many victims get through their life with out having a breakdown. I hope there is more than this life...but no one knows for sure huh?

    P.S. Keep in mind people from other places and cultures do not have the same values as us. The Japanese even beat a calf to death with bats to tenderize the meat.

    Was this guy Vietnamese? He may just have been growing his own food like many of us have gardens. Barbequed dog doesn't taste half bad.

    I have a chicken in my freezer. Is that sick?

    Kelly, no there isn't! Besides from the story above, you do not know, these may be dogs that this guy loved, kissy faced, fed and took care of, that may have died of natural causes over the past 25 years. Maybe he just can't part with them. He is disgustingly nasty for having animals in his house to begin with, but other than that, you have no facts. But there are no special reserved places in hell. That is garbage that pseudo-Christians make up while creating a religion that they like.
