In a building, the sheriff’s office said that it was about 120 dead dogs and a dead cat are in various stages of decay, some of them were just bones.”

Authorities found 38 dogs, and a cat “in his life, but in unimaginable circumstances.” Tiffany Woodington, had a bunch of them to a different location in the area, a sheriff’s sergeant who wrote in a report.

Benton County of Sheriff, Eric Knox, said that he had heard “not a word” about the problems of the dead animals were found, although the nearest neighbor lived about 500 yards away.


“It’s really surprising to me that no one in the community said:” it’s better to check this lady out.’ And the smell, and as soon as I drove away, I could smell it,” he said. “I’m a dog lover, and I have a problem with it.”


There is no lawyer for Tiffany Woodington in the online court records and she did not mention the number. Paul Fourt, Jr., the attorney for her husband, said on Tuesday that he needed to speak with his client before commenting on the accusations against him.
