Miami-Dade authorities shut down illegal slaughterhouse


MIAMI- A massive animal rescue effort is playing out in Miami-Dade County.

Authorities say many as 9,000 animals were found living in filthy, deplorable conditions.

Police have arrested two people, and are actively looking for a third suspect, accused of running an illegal slaughterhouse.

The surviving animals are being taken to sanctuaries across the state, but unfortunately, many are not expected to survive.
