Puppy Mill Busted

KNOX COUNTY, Ky. - Police have charged two people with animal cruelty, after finding what they believe to be an illegal puppy mill at a home in Knox County.

19 dogs and puppies are now under new care, which officials from the animal rescue group Justice for Abused Animals say is far better than the conditions they were once living in.

Police and rescue officials say they took the dogs from their previous owners Curt and Patricia Burko.

Curt and Patricia Burko were both charged with two counts of animal cruelty. Both are lodged in the Knox County Detention Center.
