A Massachusetts woman has been arrested and charged with animal cruelty after she was found living in a van with 21 dogs.
58-year-old Suzanne Muzaffer Eser, of Peabody, Massachusetts, was arrested Monday after a traffic stop. Police say that inside her van were 21 dogs and a bird, as well as significant amounts of trash and animal waste.
She told officials that she had been living inside the van with the animals for several months now. The dogs and the macaw were taken to local animal shelters.
