MSCO Opens Animal Cruelty Investigation

Ear­lier this week, the Men­do­cino County Sheriff’s Office was called to a home in Hop­land where more than 100 ani­mals were being kept with­out food and water. Ani­mal Con­trol offi­cers and fire­fight­ers removed the ani­mals they could and brought water to those who remained. The ani­mals included dogs, sheep, goats, cows, chick­ens, and more. Some ani­mals remain at the home, and offi­cials are check­ing in to make sure they are taken care of. The MCSO is work­ing to bring ani­mal cru­elty charges against owner.
