An Arabi man allegedly had 29 dead puppies and three dead full-grown dogs in his freezer and refrigerator, and has been booked with 32 counts of aggravated cruelty to animals, according to the St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Juan Toledo, 52, of the 300 block of Parish Drive, allegedly claimed that “he had intended to bury them at some point and he hadn’t gotten around to it,” according to Col. John Doran of the Sheriff’s Office.
“It appears that these dogs died of neglect,” Duran said. “He didn’t really have a good explanation for it. He wasn’t really rational about it.”
