Connecticut Wants to Adopt 200 Critically Neglected Farm Animals
200 severely neglected farm animals have been found on a Suffield farm.
Connecticut's Attorney General, William Tong has filed a motion for permanent custody of the suffering animals. Tong told nbcconnecticut.com the animals were emaciated, dehydrated, had untreated wounds, and infections.
Found at the farm were 18 cattle, 137 chickens, 33 ducks, and six Great Pyrenees dogs which were leased to a Manchester woman. Who does something like this? How does anyone in their right mind leave animals uncared for to die? Several dead and decaying chickens were also found on the Suffield farm.
Most of the animals have been transported to the Department of Agriculture Large Animal Rehabilitation Facility located in Niantic. Tong told nbcconnecticut.com,
We are seeking permanent state custody of these animals to ensure they receive the proper care and attention they need and deserve.
