3 dead dogs found in abandoned house

WEEKI WACHEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida authorities are investigating after at least three dead dogs were found inside a home that has been abandoned since Hurricane Irma hit the state last September.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that a construction worker spotted a dog carcass through a window of the Weeki Wachee home on Tuesday, and then two more carcasses were found inside.

The Hernando County Sheriff's Office says it's trying to determine how the dogs were left to die inside a seemingly abandoned house.

An attorney for the home owner said the woman moved in with her boyfriend last fall and let someone else stay at the house.
