An 18-month-old baby in the United States who was left in a dog kennel was rescued by the police.

The Associated Press reported that the police had rescued an 18-month-old boy from a mobile trailer in a rural village in Henrica County, Tennessee, on the 26th.

Police reported on the previous day that they were being cruel to animals in a trailer home, and they went to the scene and witnessed a shocking scene.

I found a child trapped in an iron dog kennel about 1.2 meters wide and vertical in a trailer house.

The dog kennel was covered with feces and worms, and large boa snakes and rats, about 3 meters long, crawled all around.

Inside and outside the trailer house, about 600 animals including dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits, pheasants, lizards, and squirrels, including 500 rodents and 8 snakes, were roaring.

The police seized 17 cannabis and pistols at the scene.

"The child was living like an animal," the police said. "The floor of the trailer house was full of manure, cockroaches, and maggots. It was an environment where people could hardly live."

The police arrested three children, a mother (42), a stepfather (46), and a stepfather (82) who had neglected the child for child abuse, animal abuse, and possession of guns and drugs, and transferred the child to a child shelter.
