DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The New Lebanon court found Brenda Moore guilty with seven counts of cruelty and neglect toward 81 farm animals removed from her property by the Humane Society of Greater Dayton on July 12, 2014.
In July, Chief Humane Agent Sheila Marquis removed the animals from her residence including goats, ducks, turkeys, chickens, rabbits and a pig. All animals were extremely malnourished, unhealthy and living in unfit conditions with no food or clean water present.
In addition, to the seven counts of cruelty and neglect, Moore also received five years of monitored probation and jail time that was suspended.
“Upon arriving to this home it was clear that these animals were not being properly cared for,” said Marquis. “As more cases of animal cruelty and neglect are visible in the court system, prosecutors and judges are seeing that this is a more prevalent problem in our community. We are excited that the courts agree with us and justice is being served for the animals in this case.”
While awaiting a verdict in this case, these animals have been in foster homes receiving the proper medical care, shelter, nutrition and love.
