Woman charged after allegedly putting children in pet kennels

A Memphis woman has been arrested and charged for two counts of child endangerment, after she was filmed transporting two children in dog kennels, reported CBS news.

A video taken by a passerby appears to show a young girl hopping out of a kennel from the trunk of the vehicle after a woman opens the metal cage door.

The children were kept in two separate kennels as the temperature blazed at 95 degrees.Police say Cheeks instructed the children to get inside of the kennels because there wasn't any room left in her vehicle.

The children are OK, according to police, but the same can't be said for Leimome Cheeks.

One neighbor told Local 24 it was "very sad because it feels like hell right here now, it's very hot".

Neighbors are trying to piece together the thought behind her actions.

The citizen, who does not want to be identified, sent the video to Memphis Police.
