Police Charge Torrington Woman With 22 Counts of Animal Cruelty

More than a month after seizing more than two dozen animals, including dogs, rabbits and chickens, from a home in Torrington, police have filed charges against Tracy Mailhot.

More than a month after police seized more than two dozen animals, including dogs, rabbits and chickens, from a home in Torrington, police have arrested a resident of the home. 

Police said they went to a home on Hayden Hill Road around 6 p.m. on April 28 after someone contacted authorities to report that a person might need medical attention.

When officers arrived, they noticed an unpleasant smell and found several animals in the home, so they called the City Animal Control Officer, who determined that the environment was unfit for the animals.

Authorities seized two dogs, one cat and 19 rabbits. They also removed four chickens from a coop in the yard.

The animals, which did not appear to be malnourished, were transported to the animal control facility on Bogue Road, where a veterinarian checked them.

On Tuesday morning, police arrested Tracy Mailhot, 48, on a warrant. 

She was charged with 22 counts of cruelty to animals, three counts of failure to vaccinate and two counrs of failure to license a dog.

Mailhot was released on a promise to appear and is due in Bantam Court on June 23.
