Nineteen. Deidra Lewis found nineteen bags of dead dogs on a farm, Pleasant Farms, in West Texas last week. The dead dogs had been dumped – some of them were still wearing their collars. Lewis runs West Texas Diamonds in the Ruff, a non-profit group, and had been alerted about the bones of dozens of dogs in the area of the farm.
When Lewis found the bags with all the dead dogs, she called the police. It is unclear at this time if any sort of investigation is underway. I certainly hope there is an investigation. If the dogs are wearing collars that seems like a good place to start.
Not all the dogs Lewis found that day were dead. There were three living dogs there as well. Lewis said all the dogs are females and they are all scared and traumatized. On her Facebook page, Lewis shared her story and some advice for pet owners.
