The Kankakee County state's attorney is explaining why charges will not be filed against the owners of an alleged puppy mill.

Last month, more than 50 dogs were seized in a raid at a breeder's facility near St. Anne in Kankakee County. The dogs were described as filthy and in poor condition. But the Kankakee County state's attorney says conditions were not as dire as described in the complaint that led to the search warrant and that none of the dogs suffered from malnutrition or dehydration. The state's attorney also says some of the allegations in the complaint were false.

The director of the south suburban Humane Society, where the dogs are still being held, wants the state's attorney general to look at the case.
