Authorities are looking for a couple they say abandoned more than 40 dogs, leaving the animals in filthy conditions at a home in Marianna.
Jackson County Sheriff's officials said the dogs had been living in putrid conditions for quite some time without food. Some of the dogs had died and were being eaten by the other dogs because there was no other food.
Medical officials said the surviving dogs had numerous injuries. Some were life-threatening. The dogs were transported to Animal Control of West Florida, Inc.
Authorities believe the couple has fled the immediate area.
