A case of animal abuse and neglect remains under investigation in Camden County. Authorities were originally tipped that a group of teens was allegedly setting puppies on fire. When deputies arrived, they found an extremely emaciated mother dog along with her puppies. Those animals are being cared for at a local shelter in hopes that they can be nursed back to health and put up for adoption. The teens are suspects in a possible vandalism. Anyone with information on either the animal neglect or the activities of the teens in question should contact the Camden County Sheriff’s Office at 573-346-2243.
