Nearly 200 Animals Seized From Home

Animal control officers say they busted a puppy mill and removed nearly 200 animals from a home in Wake County.

Officials say the dogs, ducks, pigeons and chickens were living under inhumane conditions at the home in Zebulon. Authorities found three dead dogs on the property. Three others showed signs of Parvo, a highly contagious and deadly disease and had to be euthanized.
