The Suffolk County SPCA has arrested a Shirley man for Animal Cruelty for keeping almost 2 dozen Pit Bulls in deplorable conditions inside and outside of his home.
Roy Gross, Chief of the Suffolk County SPCA said that Edward Erdman, 38, of 567 Rowlinson Drive, Shirley kept the dogs in deplorable conditions. “The conditions these dogs were forced to endure were horrible,” Gross said.
The dogs were living in their own excrement with no food or water and Chief Gross added that some of the dogs looked emaciated.
The investigation is continuing.
The dogs were brought to the Brookhaven Animal Shelter.
