THIEF RIVER FALLS -- Ten puppies found dumped in a ditch east of Thief River Falls last week just before a blizzard hit are healthy and kicking up a storm of publicity for the local humane society.


"It's not unusual for us to find animals dumped out in the country," said Dawn Williamson, operations manager of the Pennington County Humane Society in Thief River Falls. "But for some reason, these 10 have caught everyone's eye and we are getting lots of phone calls."
