150 animals taken from Henderson Co. home

News

HENDERSON COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) – More than 100 animals are rescued from a home in Henderson County.

After months of trying to help the owners, animal control says the situation needed saving.

Henderson County Animal Control took 150 from a mobile home in Corydon last week.

And issued two people 154 counts of animal cruelty charges.

Animal control seized dogs, cats, and birds last week.

Officials say they became aware of the hoarding in May. They say neighbors have reported it.

Animal control tried to educate and help the people living there, but conditions continued to get worse.

Basic needs like food, water, and shelter weren’t being met.

Some animals died at the home, and others have died after being rescued.

Animal Control Officer Bridget Kilgore expects most of the animals to recover though.

Kilgore said she is not at liberty to release the names of the people cited.
