WOODS CROSS, Utah (AP) - Police say a couple in northern Utah left behind three emaciated dogs when they were evicted from a rental house.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/2gOYC40 ) that a 28-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman from Woods Cross were booked into Davis County Jail for investigation of animal cruelty.

Police say the couple was evicted Thursday and a neighbor called police Sunday worried about dogs left inside the residence.

Woods Cross officer Jen Hicks says an officer could see the ribs poking out of the dogs, no food or water, and feces strewn about the house.

Davis County Animal Control helped removed a 3-year-old German Shepherd, a 9-year-old golden Lab mix and a 7-year-old pit bull mix.

Hicks says the animals needed “immediate attention.” Their current condition was not known Sunday night.
