After finding 151 dead Chihuahuas and more than 100 live dogs at a Dearborn, Mich.., resident’s home last month, police searched 14 self-storage units of various sizes that were rented to the 56-year-old James Lang. The units at Secured Self Storage contained more than 100 televisions, several lawnmowers, humidifiers, about 100 outdated computers and eight-track tape machines, but no animals or animal remains, according to an article in The Detroit News.
Wayne County prosecutors are weighing possible charges against Lang, including animal cruelty. Lang kept the dead animals in refrigerators and freezers around his home. The living animals were allowed burrow through the accumulated waste and filth.
A decision on the charges could come next week, said James Schmier, Lang’s attorney.
