A smart dog who had been trapped with other pets inside a vehicle for several days could no longer wait for help, and notified police himself – by honking the horn.
The muzzled dog was left in appalling conditions with two other dogs and two cats in a truck, with no proper care.
A week earlier, the London Humane Society in Ontario received a complaint about three dogs being left in unhygienic home. The owners likely fled to avoid being caught by Humane Society officers.
On Thursday, Donna Hebert and Allan Folkins were charged with several counts of animal cruelty.
All the animals have been taken to the Humane Society.
