Nassau County Animal Services says the animals were riding inside a single trailer being pulled by a vehicle with expired plates when it stopped Tuesday at a weigh station in Nassau County.

An arrest report says the animals were extremely dehydrated and stressed.

The 54-year-old driver was arrested for charges of animal cruelty and driving with a suspended or revoked license.

Records didn’t say whether she has an attorney who could comment.
