Another act of animal cruelty is a recent story where more than 100 cats were found in a Gahanna, Ohio home. Unfortunately, about 55 of the cats were found to be already dead in the residence.
An animal group was called into the home to do the removal process of the cats. The workers from the animal group, Columbus Humane, were protected with special suits as they went into the home of the 60-year-old home owner, and removed 111 cats on Wednesday morning.
According to a Columbus Humane spokeswoman, many of the cats that were found in the home were in horrific condition. The cats were currently all being examined by a veterinarian for help in gathering evidence, as well as to help determine the future of the cats. There were so many cats in need of medical attention and exams, that the shelter actually had to close its doors to the public in order to process and handle the examinations and treatment loads of all the cats.
It is this animal group, the Columbus Humane shelter, that deals with animal cruelty and neglect complaints for the police department in the area. The spokeswoman went on to say that they do plan to seek criminal charges be brought against the home and cat owner. As of now, there has been a hearing that has been set for next week, and it will be held in Franklin County Environmental Court. They will review the situation and determine the next steps for this heartbreaking case.
