100 dogs removed from property near Lebanon

LEBANON, Tenn. (AP) -- More than 100 dogs have been removed from unsanitary conditions in ramshackle pens near Lebanon, Tenn.

Animal Rescue Corps said the medium to large dogs were living in feces-laden pens with no doors on property in southeast Wilson County. The dogs only had dilapidated wooden boxes and rusted-through metal bins for housing, the organization said.

Spokesmen said the dogs had no shaded relief from recent hot temperatures, nor any clean water. One dog was found dead.

No arrests were immediately reported.
