Pets living in filth at site of suspected overdose

Posted: Friday, April 02, 2010

ANCHORAGE - Anchorage police say emergency responders discovered a dead puppy and more than two dozen animals living in filth when they arrived at a home where a woman suffered a medical emergency.

The unidentified woman was staying at a place that belongs to Lori Phillips, a woman with multiple DUIs on her record who is in jail awaiting trial on charges stemming from a November wreck that killed a man and critically injured his fiance.

Detective Jackie Conn, who investigates animal cruelty cases, says officers found 17 cats, a pit bull and an Australian shepherd mix that had 10 4-week-old puppies.
