UPDATE: SCRAPS Serves Search Warrant For Animal Neglect In Elk

Spokane County, February 25, 2012 – Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service (SCRAPS) continues their investigation for animal cruelty/neglect in conjunction with the search warrant executed yesterday in Elk, WA.

SCRAPS has set up an emergency animal shelter at the Spokane County Fair and Expo Center.   The emergency shelter is not open to the public.  Yesterday, Animal Protection Officers seized 91 animals from the rural property in north Spokane County in the 42000 block of Bruce Road.    The animals consisted of 2 turkeys,1 Guinea Hen, 6 chickens, 26 horses, 1 miniature horse, 3 cows, 14 llamas, 19 goats, 17 sheep, 1 donkey and 5 dogs.

The animals have all been evaluated by a veterinarian and most scored thin to emaciated on a body condition scoring scale.    Animals are settled into the emergency shelter and appropriate food/medical treatment is being provided.

The owner continues to cooperate with the investigation and has released all 91 of the seized animals to SCRAPS.   Over the next few days SCRAPS will evaluate each animal and determine its long term needs.   SCRAPS goal is to place all animals into responsible permanent homes for treatment, rehabilitation and care.

SCRAPS will provide more information on how the public may adopt these animals early next week.
