Josephine County sheriff Dave Daniel said the animals were simply just left there at the house with little to no food or water.

“It appears they had picked up and moved,” he said. “So the house, they basically just vacated and left. Obviously these animals are some caged up, so in pens. Just absolutely neglected without any food or water.”
