Police Investigate Animal Hoarding Situation

Posted: Updated:

The Petal Fire Dept. was called to the 100 block of Holly Ave. Tuesday night with a report of a smoking outlet.

Upon arrival, they noticed the strong smell of feces and urine.  When they made entry, they found about 20 cats reportedly living in deplorable conditions inside the home.

Petal Police Chief Leonard Fuller said the animal warden is following up on the case and will usually give the owner an opportunity to clean the conditions and give away some of the animals.

If not, she could face criminal charges.
