Loney L. Garrett Had 200 Dead Dogs, 1000+ Bones In Backyard: Cops
Police say they were horrified to find more than 200 dead dogs and 45 dogs in "very poor condition" in the backyard of Loney L. Garrett on Tuesday morning.
Deputies say most of the dogs died of neglect, but some were found with bullet holes in their heads, WCSC reported.
Officials also allegedly found more than 100 dog skulls behind the Goose Creek, S.C. home, according to Goose Creek Patch. The emaciated 45 living dogs "may not survive."
Garrett is currently charged with ill-treatment of animals, but charges will likely be added.
Authorities are still searching his backyard, according to Dan Moon, Berkeley County Sheriff's Office spokesperson. A search team is marking spots where they find bones and carcasses.

Animal Rights Groups Angry After Abused Horses Found On Frederick Co. Farm
FREDERICK COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) — A Pennsylvania man faces animal cruelty charges for the death of one of his horses in Frederick County. But, as Derek Valcourt explains, it’s what was discovered on the two properties he leased that has animal rescue groups so upset.
Animal groups helped rescue dozens of horses—but those horses are the lucky ones.
A kind of fungus called rain rot was on the back of one pregnant mare. That horse and 24 others were voluntarily surrendered to rescue groups now nursing them back to health. The horses’ owner, Pennsylvania resident James Houseman, faces two animal cruelty charges after Frederick County Animal Control found one horse in desperate need of medical attention. It later died.
“The foals were really the ones that were in the worst condition,” said Laurie Calhoun.
