Some hunters take great care of their dogs, while some consider them disposable. The latter was the case with pack of four beagles left behind in Long Island. As some out of town hunters do--the dogs were probably left behind after they didn't return immediately after a hunting trip.
The pack was looking to local humans for help, but some were understandably a little intimidated by the four dogs approaching! Luckily, they were eventually picked up by the Southold Animal Shelter. The dogs garnered some media attention, in part because of community concerns about the problem of abandoned hunting dogs in the North Fork area. Thanks to the news coverage, Southold Animal Shelter was flooded with adoption requests for member of this pack. Two of them already have new homes--forever homes this time around.
