SCRANTON, N.D. (AP) — Another 70 dogs have been removed from a breeding operation at a Bowman County farmstead near Scranton.
Animal rescue groups in Mandan and Jamestown earlier removed 129 dogs from DRK Kennels after owner LuAnn Dschaak (duh-SHAWK') voluntarily gave them up. That followed complaints that led local and state officials to investigate the condition of the dogs.
Central Dakota Humane Society director Sue Buchholz (BUHK'-holz) tells The Bismarck Tribune that Dschaak also gave up the latest batch of dogs. But she says she's sending documents to the sheriff in hopes Dschaak will be charged with animal neglect and abuse.
Dschaak has said she was evicted from the farmstead after complaining about raw sewage that made some dogs sick. She says the farmstead owners turned off water and electricity, so she couldn't clean the dogs.
