Nearly 100 animals were seized from a property in rural Morgan County on Friday afternoon by the sheriff’s office and animal control officers.
In total, more than 60 dogs, 17 chickens, 11 ducks and three cats were removed from the property. The Morgan County Humane Society described it as a “backyard breeding operation.”
“Many dogs are suffering from major and minor medical issues and injuries sustained by inappropriate housing, untreated medical issues or infighting among kennel mates,” the shelter said in a statement posted on Facebook.
