Disposition: Not Charged
Person of Interest: man
An unidentified 41-year old mentally challenged man will not be charged after animal control officers removed two sheep, 50 dogs and three cats from his home yesterday.
Greg Smith, animal control officer said the home near Dundalk was one of the worst cases of animal filth he's seen in his career. "When we were trying to get the 50 dogs we were sliding on dog feces."
The man, who is said to have the mental capacity of a 3 to 8 year old child, has been taken to a nearby hospital.
The recommendation is to condemn the house because it is in such horrible condition.
"It's a complete disaster. The washroom was totalled, it couldn't be used."
The sheep were kept mostly in a manure filled back room whole the dogs and cats lived through the house.
The dogs were of mixed breeds and there were 11 six-week old puppies found in the home. All the animals were taken to the Owen Sound Animal Shelter.
