When A Rescue Shelter Goes Bad - Wisconsin Animal Seizure

This is a very disturbing story from the ASPCA about a Wisconsin animal sanctuary that was treating there animals in a very inhumane way. "On Tuesday, May 19, the ASPCA dispatched its forensics and animal response teams, as well as its Mobile Animal Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) Unit, to collect evidence in the investigation of the Thyme and Sage Ranch, an animal sanctuary in Cazenovia, WI.

Under the authority and request of the Richland County District Attorney and Dane County Humane Society, the ASPCA is currently evaluating more than 300 animals found at the site and gathering evidence for the prosecution of the criminal case. More than a dozen responders from the ASPCA Disaster Response Team are on the scene, along with the ASPCA Mobile CSI Unit, a specially-designed vehicle outfitted with medical equipment for animal patients." full story and pictures here >>>
