SPRINGTOWN, Texas (AP) - Two generations of a North Texas family have been arrested after deputies found 58 dogs living in filth without food and water - and a baby in a crib surrounded by the animals' waste.
A statement Monday from the Parker County Sheriff's Office says mother and two uncles of the 18-month-old child, along with the mother's own parents, were arrested over the weekend. The grandparents and both uncles were charged with animal cruelty. The mother, grandmother and both uncles were charged with child endangerment.
The situation was Wednesday at a house the grandmother owned near Springtown, almost 30 miles northwest of Fort Worth. Two of the dogs had to be euthanized.
