For those who are not familiar with the story, or need a refresher...

This is a story I have been following from an animal list. Be careful if you choose to view the photos. They are graphic and heartbreaking, especially if you're an animal lover.

YOUNGSTOWN — A professional sign out front belied the fact that dead and starving dogs were in the back yard of High Caliber K-9.

The business at 1516 Coitsville-Hubbard Road promotes itself as a center for dog training, grooming and boarding. It also offers “doggie day care,” underground fencing, dog importing and stud service.

Kyle Ziegler and Joe Borosky, Animal Charity humane agents, went to the business Wednesday afternoon after a woman called and complained that she couldn’t get her dog back from the man operating the place. The agents knocked but no one answered so they got permission to look from the next-door neighbor’s back yard.

What they saw made them call police.

“We found seven dead and eight skinny, neglected dogs," Borosky said. “We’re filing 15 counts of animal cruelty and animal neglect against the owner.”

Records show the business is operated by Steve Croley. He was expected to be arraigned today in municipal court.

I would love to leave him in one of his kennel without any food or water for a couple of weeks and see how he likes it. :frustrated:

That is truly heartbreaking!:sad:

Those pictures were horrific, I am glad he was found out, stopped, and whatever dogs were living are now okay, and the ones who very sadly were dead are now out of their misery.

:yell:What madness makes people do that???!!!!????

It is so anger-enducing!:frustrated:
