Incident type: Animal cruelty
Location: 5600 Hawkinsville Road
Four emaciated puppies, an adult dog and a dead puppy were found in an abandoned trailer. Neighbors called deputies to report the animals. The responding deputy was told that the dogs had been abandoned for about two weeks. The puppies were about 6 weeks-old and it appeared that they were not given any food or water. The grown dog was inside the trailer, but a resident told the deputy they put it inside of an outdoor kennel and gave it food and water. Animal control was called to the scene and they took all of the dogs. Neighbors told the deputy about the previous occupants of the trailer, gave them a description of their car and told them where they are living now. Authorities are looking for them.
The following items are from incident reports filed by Macon-Bibb County Sheriff's deputies.
