Eleven dogs have been found dead in an abandoned trailer that housed a total of 40 dogs in what SPCA officials called a puppy mill.
The trailer, located on a rural country road, is owned by a Franklinville woman.
The Cattaraugus County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has asked the New York State Police to charge Donna Green with cruelty to animals. State police at Franklinville are searching for her.
SPCA officials found the dead dogs Friday after Ms. Green's landlord, Harry Alexander, alerted them.
