TAMPA, Fla. — The Humane Society of Tampa Bay found 29 dead guinea pigs behind a Walmart on Dale Mabry on Wednesday.
The Humane Society said it was able to capture and rescue 15 additional guinea pigs from the area, but one died in transport.
Hillsborough County Animal Control said it's investigating the incident. Someone who found the guinea pigs called the Humane Society, which reported it to animal control.
