92 Animals Seized from Gainesville Home
It's another case of animal abuse... and this time, it involves more animals than before.
Ninety-two animals were removed from a home in Gainesville.
And now, residents are wondering how anyone could neglect that many dogs and cats.
Officials with Alachua County Animal Control say... it appears the woman had been hoarding the animals.
In addition to the live animals that were seized, over a dozen dead ones, kept in a container in the home, were also removed.
Animal Control had been to the woman's house before, attempting to work with her on reducing the number of animals she had.
"When we decide to seize someone's pets, it is not something we take lightly. right now these pets are in a better place," David Flagler, of Animal Control, said.
Officials with animal control say the woman was in her 80's.
She'll be undergoing a mental health evaluation... that's why her name wasn't released.
Officials say it's unlikely prosecutors will pursue any charges.
