7 puppies found abandoned around Marathon

MARATHON, FLA. (WSVN) - Police want to identify a man after, they said, seven puppies were found abandoned outside different locations in Marathon.

The puppies were about six weeks old and in bad shape — dehydrated, malnourished and infected with worms. They were discovered sometime in April. An animal care group is now taking care of them.

Deputies want to identify the man who, they said, was carrying the puppies outside a jewelry and pawn shop on Overseas Highway and Margaret Avenue.
