A woman in Shamong Township, Burlington County, was found living with 44 dead dogs and 130 living dogs in "deplorable" conditions, State Police said.
Donna Roberts, 65, was charged with animal cruelty Tuesday after State Police from the Red Lion Station inspected her home on Oakshade Road. With the Burlington County Health Department, authorities discovered "evidence of animal cruelty inflicted upon various breeds of dogs on the property," State Police said in a statement.
The odor of animal feces and ammonia permeated the inside of the residence, which caused several responders to feel dizzy and nauseous, State Police said.
The 44 dead dogs were packaged in plastic bags and stored in freezers throughout the residence, State Police said. Four of the 130 living dogs were in critical condition and transported to an emergency veterinary clinic, they said. The other dogs were treated by animal shelter workers.
"Although the circumstances surrounding the demise of the 44 dogs that were discovered inside plastic bags in freezers remain under investigation, the deplorable and inhumane living conditions the rescued dogs were forced to endure is tragic," State Police Col. Patrick Callahan said in a statement. "Troopers take an oath to protect and safeguard life, including the lives and well-being of pets, which can be vulnerable to abuse."
Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina said when contact with Roberts raised concerns about the welfare of animals on the property, the Prosecutor's Office sought a search warrant.
Roberts was released pending court, officials said.
Lol, this lady and Trump must go to the same tanning salon and hairdresser!!!
why should they put her in a freezer?
President Trump is no animal abuser. What is your point, besides engaging in gratuitous and unfounded character assassination?
She weren’t no cat lady.
Very carefully check your Kung Pao Beef.
if I have to explain it then there is no reason to answer your question....which is kind of dumb.
THEY RELEASED HER???
She werent no cat lady. >>>
that’s for sure, but she is of the same mental derangement. There is at least one in every neighborhood it seems.
Very carefully check your Kung Pao Beef. >>
I heard the local Chinese restaurant made frequent deliveries and left with bags in hand.
Cat people don’t murder - that’s dog people territory. Just like cats don’t murder, that’s dog territory.
LOL I keed, I keed!
THEY RELEASED HER??? >>
I know, the jails must be full... or maybe she did a better job than animal control, it’s cheaper to have her do it for free.
Probably not the best board to make that comment on.
I could see where that could merit a chuckle.
But we around here are fiercely protective of our President.
There’s enough people EVERYWHERE denigrating him.
And not just for a laugh. Which I’m sure is all you were going for.
But so many hate him, it’s hard to differentiate sometimes.
Have a good night.
I’m speechless. Somebody this messed up should be in a rubber room.
Crazy lady pussy pass.
Yeah. I agree. You are kind of dumb, aren't you?
Woman kept 44 dead dogs in freezers, 130 living in horrendous conditions: officials
She is clearly insane and should be put into an asylum.
All of that just to prove how tuff she is by being able to make a dog meow;
“...THEY RELEASED HER???....”
Probably a democrat. They never get charged with anything, and she’s certainly Insane enough to be one.
