Acting on tips, State Police and the Sullivan County Humane Society secured and served a search warrant for property on Washington Street in the city of Sullivan where they found several animals in squalid conditions in a condemned home.
The search took place Saturday where the authorities discovered numerous amounts of animal feces and urine, flea infestation, dry animal food scattered about and no running water. Further check of the residence revealed one male Pitbull, one pregnant female Pitbull, two other mixed breed dogs, four live rabbits and twenty-one deceased rabbits. All of the animals appeared emaciated and were taken into custody of the Sullivan Humane Society. In the backyard of the residence, officers found two burial sites which contained what appeared to be two bludgeoned dogs and one rabbit.
The home is owned by a Florida based company, but is currently condemned by the Sullivan Building Commissioner.
Witnesses have said they’ve seen two males dressed in hoodies arrive at the home between 2 and 3 in the morning at various times driving a faded red to maroon older model four door car. Police were asking anyone with more information to call the state police or Sullivan Police Department.
