Five dogs are sitting in a safer place tonight after years of living in an inhumane environment at a Naples home. Collier County Animal Services has issued many citations to Natalie West, the owner of the five dogs. Citation after citation led to a Special Magistrate Hearing in Collier County, where a judge ordered West to surrender the five dogs. Domestic Animal Services representatives say the dogs were living in cages with their own feces and that the lanai where their cages were was also filled with urine and feces. Neighbors of West spoke in court about the conditions the dogs were living in. Unfortunately, two of the dogs have been too affected and are too aggressive to be adopted, according to Animal Services representatives.

Dairy farmers are barely breaking even as the price of milk rises at Florida grocery stores. They say their industry has been in trouble for years, and there are only a handful of dairy farms left in Florida. There are none in Southwest Florida, including Lee, Collier and Charlotte Counties. Rising milk prices are being felt by shoppers in Southwest Florida. Florida consumes more milk than it produces: about 2.4 billion pounds a year compared to the 40 billion pounds produced in California and 30 billion in Wisconsin. With milk prices rising, many people are looking for alternatives like almond, cashew and even oat milk. Milk is selling for about $4 a gallon in most stores. The price could rise slightly higher in the next couple of months.
