Local News

It was an unsettling scene on Lighthouse Street in Erie as several dozen animals are removed from a residence.

According to the Humane Society’s executive director, animal cruelty officers responded to reports of a dog being mistreated and noticed a smell from outside the house.

The officers served a warrant and removed about 35 animals. Most of these animals were small dogs and most of them were in crates.

The owner of the animals is a woman described by the officers as a hoarder who they also dealt with in 2010.

The dogs and several cats are being held as evidence and will be examined by a vet.

Officials are looking for foster homes for these animals.
