WISE COUNTY, Texas - Authorities say they found two kids locked in a dog kennel at a Texas home Tuesday morning, according to the Wise County Messenger.

The news outlet reports that the kids, ages 4 and 5, found inside the kennel were also malnourished.

Two other children, a 3-year-old and a 1-year-old, were also malnourished, but not in a kennel.

The newspaper reports that while speaking to the man and woman about a possible family violence situation, a deputy heard children inside the home.
