PIKEVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Animal control officers have removed more than 100 dogs from the home of a former county official in eastern Kentucky. The animals were seized Friday from the home of former Pike County deputy judge-executive Randal Good and taken to the Pike County Animal Shelter, where they are being cleaned and treated for malnutrition. The current Pike County Deputy Judge-Executive, John Doug Hays, oversees the animal shelter and called the condition of the dogs "heartbreaking." The Appalachian News-Express reported that it the second time more than 100 animals have been removed from Good's property. The first time was in 2004. Good told WYMT-TV that he tried to care for the animals, but got overwhelmed. He said most of the dogs were given to him by people who didn't want them anymore.
