More than 50 animals were found tethered to trees in Florida to face Hurricane Irma alone in what officials are calling a horrifying act of animal cruelty.
Animal control officers found abandoned pets just north of Miami in Palm Beach County.
Director of Animal Care Diane Sauve mentioned that these animals were not simply just left inside by their owners. “They are left in a yard, in a pen they cannot escape from or tethered to trees or poles,” she said.
Before the hurricane made landfall in Florida, animal control officers managed to rescue 49 dogs and two cats.
