Alleged: James Ansell
A Stoystown man has been charged with cruelty to animals after troopers said they found pets at his home without food or water.
Troopers said Thursday they went to the home of James Ansell, 25, in the 100 block of First Street on an unrelated matter.
They found a black Labrador, a white cat and several mice that had been abandoned inside the home for an unspecified period, police said.
No food or water was accessible to any of the animals, the police report said, and the dog was confined to a small wire cage.
The animals were taken to the Somerset County Humane Society.
