BOYNTON BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Former neighbors of Demetris and Patricia Walker remember seeing the couple's four pit bulls around the building. "I saw them when they were puppies, but they looked healthy to me," said one.
What they didn't see what was inside the couple's Northwest 10th Avenue home.
Beach investigators released photos of what they found. They show two
of the dogs left in crates. Two were found with their faces pressed into
broken windows. All of them were malnourished and underweight. "It
was horrid, there was feces and urine throughout the house, no food or
water throughout the house, particularly disturbing was one corner or
the homes was a bloodbath, where two of the dogs got into a fight," said
Liz Roehrich, an animal cruelty investigator.
Roehrich says the dogs were likely left alone for two to three weeks. She says she's actually seeing less of these cases in Boynton Beach compared to years past.
it never gets easy. "Way too often the individuals I deal with are
looking at these animals as possessions, not the living breathing,
feeling beings that they are."
Police have issued a warrant for Demetris and Patricia Walker -- who no longer live in the home.
A former neighbor says times are tough and food may have been hard to come by. "They taking care of people, they ain't worried about those dogs, people trying to eat," the neighbor said.
Two of the dogs had to be euthanized and two were adopted out.
The new owner of one of the surviving dogs says she's doing great now. Her new name is Sheila!
