WARNING: Some readers may find the below pictures disturbing.
We are being encouraged to get in touch with authorities, if we bought a dog from puppy farm which has been shut down near the New South Wales border.
81 dogs and puppies and ten cats were seized and sent to the Wacol RSPCA.
RSPCA Qld Inspectors and Detectives from the Goondiwindi Criminal Investigation Branch carried out the bust in Glenarbon on Monday morning.
They found dogs, mainly American Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Australian and American Bulldogs, French Bulldogs and Pitbulls on the property. Two needed emergency treatment.
“The conditions the dogs and cats were being kept in were very disturbing,” said RSPCA Qld Chief Inspector Daniel Young.
“There was inadequate shelter and water and a number of the dogs were carrying injuries that needed urgent veterinary treatment. There was one dog that was sharing a small space with a dog that was deceased and there were the remains of a number of corpses lying near dogs that were tethered. We’d like to sincerely thank Queensland Police for their invaluable assistance in this operation”
A 40-year-old man is being questioned but is due to face Goondiwindi Magistrates Court on other matters.
Investigators would like to hear from anyone who may have purchased an animal from the property in the past.
