Dog honks for help after being left alone in truck

Several neglected dogs and cats have been rescued in London, Ont., after one of the dogs alerted authorities by honking the horn of a truck where they were being held for several days.

Police say the muzzled dog — along with two other dogs and two cats — had been left in "deplorable conditions without proper care" in the parked truck.

They say the discovery came a week after someone complained to the London Humane Society about three dogs exposed to unsanitary conditions in a home.

It's alleged the residents of the home left with the dogs to avoid Humane Society officers.

Donna Hebert and Allan Folkins-Wyre were charged Thursday with counts of cruelty to animals.

The animals have been taken in by the Humane Society.
