WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (AP) - A police spokesman says abandoned dogs,
cats, roosters, chickens and ducks have been removed from a filthy
eastern Kentucky home.
Williamsburg police spokesman Shawn Jackson tells The
Times-Tribune most of the animals were found in the backyard of a
house where officials had received complaints.
Jackson says when law enforcement and animal control officials
visited the house Thursday, they found deplorable conditions and
animals that appeared to not have been fed in a while.
He says at least one dog was found in a cage filled with feces,
a bowl of black, stagnant water and a chicken carcass. He says
several cats were found inside a small house filled with rotted
food, cat urine and feces.
An investigation is ongoing.
