Four kids were removed from a filthy trailer home in Nebraska where a three-year-old and his five-year-old brother were kept in a wire dog kennel. The mother, who is not named to protect the identities of the children, told police she put the boys in the kennel at night to keep them from climbing out of the trailer through a window. North Platte Police say the kids were removed from the home after someone called and told them to check on their welfare. They say there were no signs the boys were physically abused or malnourished. Officers say the trailer was full of trash, animal feces and the stench of urine. One officer found the boys in a 30-by-42 inch kennel.
