LAKELAND, Fla. (WFLA) - Police have arrested a Lakeland man after officers say they found his dogs so malnourished that they were eating one another.

Lakeland police say Genar Smith, 54, was in possession of five pit-bulls that were "deprived of sustenance" after officers responded to an animal complaint at his home on 12th Street West.

The officer who responded to Smith's home says he found two dogs chained to the ground, three in a medium-sized cage, and one in a large cage. One of the dogs in the medium cage was dead, the officer said, with most of its neck and skull eaten by the other two dogs.

The dogs were "considerably malnourished" with their rib cages and hip bones clearly visible due to starvation. One of the dogs found alive in the medium cage also had part of its tail bitten off.

The officer also observed no food or water in any of the bowls. There was no overhead cover to protect the animals from the elements, the officer noted.
