CHILDREN PLAYING AROUND THEIR DEAD DOG, STARVED TO DEATH, STILL CHAINED TO TREE
"The conditions we got from the vet, severe emaciation, dehydration," Suffolk SPCA Chief Roy Gross said. "She admitted she hasn't fed these dogs in two weeks."
Members of the local animal rescue group found one of Bailey's dogs wandering around the street, with some kids close behind.
"That's when the children arrived and said she belonged to them," said Linda Klampfl, of the Almost Home Animal Rescue.
They asked the children where their mother lived, and they pointed to the house on South 27th Street. Bailey let them in, and that's when they discovered the horrific scene and contacted the SPCA.
Gross said Bailey told them she "couldn't afford" to feed the dogs.
The SPCA also notified Child Protective Services. The dogs are expected to recover.
Anyone who would like to donate to the dogs' care can call the Babylon Animal Shelter at 631-643-9270, and anyone who witnesses any incident of animal cruelty or neglect is urged to contact the Suffolk County SPCA at (631) 382-7722. All calls will be kept confidential.
