Florida Woman Arrested After 47 Cats and a Dog Found Locked in a Moving Truck

Police arrested a woman in Holiday, Florida, after they found 37 cats and a dog locked in the back of a U-Haul truck without food, water, or air conditioning.

After receiving numerous complaints from neighbors, Pasco County deputies say they found almost 50 cats and a dog locked inside the storage area and the cab of a U-haul truck at athe home of Karen Tuttle-Kunnmann. The animals were caged and had no food, water, or air conditioning in the 90-degree Florida heat. Many were found sitting in their own feces.

Deputies unloaded the vehicle and found cats packed everywhere – underneath furniture and in cages stacked to the top of the truck. The animals were reportedly transported to local animal control.

Karen Tuttle-Kunnmann, 61, was arrested and charged with 47 counts of animal cruelty and is being held on a $5,000 bond for each count.

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
