The Carabinieri of the Ponzano Romano Station, together with the Forestry Carabinieri of Sant’Oreste, discovered an illegal breeding with 110 husky dogs in conditions of abuse and neglect in a private villa in Ponzano Romano near Rome.
The carabinieri of the local station had identified the private house, a “fortified” cottage in the countryside, as a possible illegal breeding, also for the cries of the animals that were heard in the vicinity, but to reinforce the doubt was a complaint from an association the environmental and animal protection of Rome, which reported possible ill-treatment to the Sant’Oreste Forestry Carabinieri Station responsible for the area.
16 enclosures with 82 Husky inside were discovered outside the villa. The spaces were however very small to contain such a large number of animals, with the further aggravating circumstance that they were without running water to water the animals, especially with the very high temperatures of these days, and it was ascertained that the animals themselves did not food had been provided for some time. A dog was found in the house that has been dead for days.
Another 29 dogs saved in cramped cages. The entire property is seized and the 110 dogs are placed in custody. A complaint was filed for the owner to the Rieti Public Prosecutor’s Office for “mistreatment of animals” and “possession of animals in conditions incompatible with their nature”.
