Warrants have been issued for a 23-year old woman for cruelty to animals after an animal control officer found a dead and decomposed kitten on the front porch and other emaciated, flea-bitten cats and kittens on her Black’s Creek Church Road property.
A neighbor advised that no one had been home to check on the animals in over a week. Animal control officer Beth Harmon seized six of the kittens that she could catch. Animal control reported that they have had multiple dealings with the two women who live there in the past about the cats and that cats have been seized from them before.
Photos were taken of the animals.
