Cats in a plastic bin dehydrated and immobile
Four cats were found near death in a plastic bin.
The cats were severely dehydrated. Their bodies were in shock. Their eyes were dull and their legs weak. This is after they were crammed into a plastic bin and driven around in a hot truck for four hours.
The general manager of the Associated Humane Societies says the cats' bodies were immobile and in the fetal position. He says the cats had to be stretched out by hand.
Investigators say that it's not the former owner's fault, but rather that of the animal control officer who came to retrieve them. He may be charged with animal abuse.
