The newest residents at the Levy County Animal Shelter are 14 puppies rescued by two good samaritans.
Letcher Beam and his son Donald, both residents of Bronson,spotted the dogs off of a county road.
"First we thought they might've been small hogs because they were all huddled together we only saw two or three. Then an additional 14 came out, a total of 14 dogs. And they were very cold and very hungry," Beam says.
Beam called the sheriff's office and the dogs were taken to the Levy County Animal Shelter. Staff estimate the puppies to be four to five weeks old. But the puppies won't be here for long as a local rescue group will take the puppies on saturday.
Beam thinks someone should have to pay for this.
"I would like to see the people prosecuted if they could be caught in some way. Maybe have a little suffering like the puppies did," Beam says.
Deputies have no suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call the Levy County Sheriff's Office or Crimestoppers. A reward is being offered.
