ND dog breeder under scrutiny says she's been evicted

BOWMAN, N.D. (AP) — A southwest North Dakota dog breeder under scrutiny by law enforcement and animal rescue officials says she was evicted from a Scranton farmstead.

LuAnn Dschaak, owner of DRK Kennels, told The Bismarck Tribune that she's homeless and hasn't been able to find a place to take her dogs.

Animal rescue organizations in Mandan and Jamestown over the weekend removed 129 dogs from the Bowman County site and left 1,000 pounds of food for the dogs left behind. Dschaak says she was relieved when the rescue workers took the dogs and will turn over many if not all of the remaining animals soon.

Dschaak remains under investigation by the Bowman County Sheriff's Department, which two weeks ago gave her 30 days to improve conditions.
