Animals Seized in Young County

Officials in Young County have seized over a dozen animals from a home in Newcastle.

Kim Baxter of the Young County Humane Society said they seized eleven dogs and six cats from 406 Madison Ave. Friday evening. Baxter said there are still around 20 cats, many of them wild, at the residence.

Four of the dogs have health issues and one cat had to be euthanized after several attempts by veterinarians to help it.

Baxter said this appears to be a hoarding situation. The owner of the animals is due in court on Nov. 1.
