woman and her 22 dogs found in a station wagon

Yesterday (February 9), a woman in Pottsboro, Texas locked herself inside her station wagon with her dogs. Lots of dogs. Twenty dogs and two puppies, to be exact.

Apparently, the woman was staying in the car with her dogs. When the police arrived to free the dogs, she locked the doors and refused to come out.

In addition to the woman and her dogs, the car contained a pot of water, blankets... and a whole lot of the doo that doggies do. She apparently wasn't very good at taking each of them out for a walk.

Courtney Stevens of the Texas SPCA said, "The car was soaked with urine and covered in feces. The ammonia level in the vehicle was 23 parts per million even after the doors had been opened for several minutes. As a frame of reference, humans start experiencing health issues at 12 parts per million,"

The woman does not face charges, but the custody of the dogs will undoubtedly be given to others.


This is probably part of the dog crime ring.
