Friday, Mar 19, 1999

County: Linn

Disposition: Not Charged

Person of Interest: Jennifer Leslie Wood

This is at least the third time Wood has had animals seized from her residences in Cedar Rapids. In 1999, when she was known as Jennifer Hicks, officers took 118 animals from her home at 1260 Houston Ct. NE, according to Gazette archives. The animals taken included 43 cats, 16 dogs, 15 cockatiels, 14 domestic rats, six turtles, five lizards, four frogs, three hamsters, three gerbils, two guinea pigs, three mice, two rabbits and two ferrets.

No charges were filed against Wood, but in an agreement with city after the 1999 seizure, she promised not to house more than six animals in a Cedar Rapids residence. No further information is available at this time
