Terrell County -- A Terrell County man is charged with animal cruelty, and authorities are looking for that suspect. Code enforcers confiscated six malnourished pit bull mixes and one dead dog Monday night from Larry Thomas' home after he was evicted.
They worry more dogs may be in danger. The six dogs are at the county's kennels behind the Terrell Correctional Institute. Many have scars and are malnourished.
Code enforcement officer Martha Ann Coe said Thomas' wife and the property owner believe Thomas had as many as 16 dogs and may have moved nine other dogs to another county. "We think they're in Webster County. We're making every effort to find out where the dogs are and we'll contact the Webster County authorities when we find the dogs and hopefully they'll work with us and help us get those dog also if they're in the same condition," said Coe.
Coe said the six dogs will likely be euthanized. Coe wants Thomas to turn himself in to authorities and turn the other dogs over to the county.
Thomas is charged with one count of felony animal cruelty for the dog that starved to death, and six misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty.
