KHQ.COM - At 8:20 Saturday morning SCRAPS & the Spokane County Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant at 6204 N. Idaho street near the Stateline after getting an anonymous tip of animal cruelty. Authorities along with the HEART group (Humane Evacuation Rescue Team) seized dozens of farm animals including goats, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs and dozens of cats. We're told a lot of the animals were severely under weight. The animals were found in unsanitary conditions with a lack of food. The owner, who doesn't want to be identified, tells KHQ that all of this is ridiculous and she's getting her own veterinarian to check over the animals. The owner tells us all of the animals that were seized were "taken care of just fine." SCRAPS seized about 70 animals from the same property in 2004.
