That is totally odd, because I saw the SAME story, DIFFERENT article and paper and its said something radically different. The officers said the animals were in GREAT condition. Which story is the truth? Makes you wonder.

The NY Daily News is know for it's sensationalism. I would tend to believe the channel 4 story over the daily news.

Does that mean just rubbermaid bins or what?

I think the neglecting part of the story was fabricated for some reason.
