BUTLER, Pa. — A couple was charged after Butler County humane officers said they have found 25 animals hidden deep in the woods and left to die in locked cages.
Last November, officials with the Butler County Humane Society said they found five dead cats in carriers. Iggy, a cat, was the only animal to be rescued alive during that incident.
On Wednesday, animal officials went back to the property in Winfield Township to investigate an animal cruelty case. They said they found 18 dead cats and one dead dog on the property.
"It just breaks your heart," Jill Hall said with the Butler County Humane Society.
Some good news: Iggy was cleared for adoption.
