    Possible animal cruelty? Those poor creatures were left alone to starve or freeze to death. The responsible parties should be jailed outside in winter with no food or water... see how that feels! No difference between animal or human cruelty in my opinion; dogs have emotions, feel love, betrayl, and pain the same way we do. Sickening.
