Over a half-dozen animals were found abandoned at a state park in our area over the weekend.
The dogs and pot-bellied pigs were left at Deer Creek State Park and the Circle Area Humane Society responded when ODNR officials were notified.
In one case, a dog was found locked in a port-a-potty, and another dog was found emaciated. Yet, another dog is set to give birth to a litter of puppies any day now.
All of the animals affected are getting the proper care and services they need, while investigators look for those responsible.
