85 abandoned dogs found in Idaho home after tenant evicted

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) — Police in northern Idaho say 85 dogs were found abandoned in a home where a tenant had recently been evicted.

The Kootenai Humane Society took in 66 of the dogs found in the Kellogg home on Monday, and nearby shelters took in the other animals.

One dog was dead when rescuers arrived and another had to be euthanized.

Kootenai Human Society director Debbie Jeffrey says the dogs appear to be friendly and are generally healthy and that some could be ready for adoption this weekend.

Kellogg Police Sgt. Paul Twidt says an animal cruelty investigation is underway.

  1. “Kootenai Human Society director Debbie Jeffrey says the dogs appear to be friendly and are generally healthy….”
    “….in a home where a tenant had recently been evicted.”
    Even taking into account the APPALLING reporting which is de rigueur with the AP’s ‘journalism’, these quotes bring about at least ONE rather large question:
    As the term “evicted” suggests either law enforcement or some other third-party intervention, why were the dogs’ presence not noted at THAT time?
    Not that–in what, today, passes for ‘news reporting–anyone should ever expect to be treated to a follow-up, but doesn’t such an outrage merit more than a bit over fifty words?
    Oh, my bad. The AP–etc. etc. etc.–has been ‘affected by COVID-19’. 🙁
