Knoxville Couple Charged With Animal Cruelty.
Knoxville authorities have removed more than 70 dogs from a house, charged a couple with animal cruelty, and condemned their home.
Animal control officers waded in feces up to a foot deep to rescue the animal after numerous complaints from neighbors about the stench.
Two people are in police custody, facing animal abuse charges. Officers say they found three dead dogs and many of the others were unhealthy.
Animal control says it’s the worst case of animal abuse they’ve seen in Knox county.
