Four people, including the son of a U.S. senator, have been indicted on charges of animal cruelty that resulted in the deaths of 21 dogs, AZ Central reported.
The news caused big sighs of reliefs from many dog lovers in Arizona and elsewhere. Since June, when reports came in that some 20 dogs died in a windowless 8-by-12-foot room, there’s been widespread outrage that law enforcement hadn’t taken any action against the owners of Green Acre Dog Boarding. Numbers have wavered back and forth since the initial reports, butit’s believed that there were as many as 28 dogs in the room. Twenty-one of the dogs died overnight.
