COLUMBUS, Ohio - A central Ohio woman tells a judge she is surrendering 60 animals at her Orient home to the Capital Area Humane Society.
WCMH-TV in Columbus ( bit.ly/QCTg4m ) says Michelle Horn appeared in court Tuesday on new charges of animal abuse involving four dogs and for a probation revocation hearing. Both matters were rescheduled, but WCMH reported that Horn told the judge she was giving up the animals at her home. She said they belonged to her son.
The animals seized Tuesday included an underweight dog, a dog with hair loss, frogs, a python, an iguana, a rooster, some chickens, a ferret, mice and crickets.
The humane society said the animals will be evaluated for care in an appropriate environment.
