Dogs seized from York home

YORK -- Five dogs were seized Monday from a Valley Road home when authorities found them living in a small cage outdoors, a York Police report states.

Animal control authorities found the mixed breed dogs living in a 4- by 8- foot cage that was 3 feet tall. The dogs, estimated at 10 pounds each, were eating and drinking from two upside down hubcaps, the report states. The cage lacked adequate shelter from the elements, according to the report.

Officials investigated the animals after someone reported animal neglect at the address. The owner now faces animal neglect charges, the report states. The dogs were taken to the York County Animal Shelter.

York man killed in hit-and-run
