State police and humane officers are investigating after three dogs were found dead at a home in Yukon this afternoon.

The dogs were found dead in the yard of the Highway Street home in South Huntingdon Township.

Neighbors said the tenants moved out and left several dogs chained on the property. Neighbors said they repeatedly called the Fallen Timber Animal Shelter in Elizabeth to report that the animals were underfed, then contacted police.

Police, who have not yet identified the animals' owner, said charges will be filed.
