18 frozen puppies used to feed pet snakes found in rural Oregon home

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A search warrant executed on a home in Goble, Oregon found 18 frozen puppies which were allegedly used in feeding the residents’ pet snakes, according to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office.

After the county Animal Control received information that the resident was freezing the litters of puppies for this purpose, CCSO deputies executed the search warrant Friday morning, authorities say.

CCSO recovered and seized the puppies, which were then taken to the Oregon Humane Society to determine the cause of death, officials say.
