60+ Healthy and Frozen Felines Found in M-mouth
MONMOUTH, Ill. (AP) — Warren County authorities say they found more than 60 cats living inside a Monmouth house.
Now the tenants may face charges.
The cats were removed from the Monmouth home on Thursday. Warren County Animal Control Officer John Livingston says several frozen cat carcasses were also found in a freezer. He says the other cats all appear to be healthy. But the home was dilapidated and the conditions weren’t safe. Livingston says between 60 and 70 cats were found, but investigators plan to return to the home today(Friday) and say the number may go up.
The number of rescued cats overwhelmed the county animal shelter, which had to get help from nearby agencies caring for the felines.
