LICKING COUNTY, Ohio (WCMH) -- Police say an Indiana dog breeder whose minivan broke down in Licking County, Ohio was caught transporting 62 dogs, some just a few weeks old.

For hours, they traveled four to five dogs per crate.

"They were stuffed from the bottom to the top," said Licking County Humane Society Executive Director Lori Carlson.

The breeder said he was taking 50 dogs and 12 puppies from Country Boys Pets in Indiana to an animal rescue New Jersey.

"By the time we got them into our care, it had almost been 24 hours that they had been in the van," said Carlson.
