Keith Eckert says that the noises of dogs fighting in his neighbor’s yard finally got too much for him to bear, so he had to do something about it. “Get a video, get pictures, get as much as you can,” he said. The Edmonds, Washington man posted his disturbing videos online, and local police took notice. On Tuesday, they arrested Rose Adams and removed the dogs from her property. She has not yet been charged, but investigators say they are weighing the evidence carefully.
Eckert’s video shows one dog being viciously attacked by others, a mankicking a dog, and Adams dragging another dog by its hind legs. Two of the 14 dogs removed from Adams’s home required medical attention. By law, she could have only five dogs.
