Police Seize Nearly 30 Animals From Litchfield Home

More than two dozen animals were seized from a home in Litchfield on Wednesday.

State police served a search warrant at the house at 365 Beach St. after receiving reports Monday of neglected animals.

Inside, police say they found animals living in deplorable conditions.

On Monday, police assisted the Torrington animal control officer at the home as the officer took custody of two dogs and a cat that were in poor health, according to state police.

After serving the search warrant on Wednesday, officers seized 16 rabbits, four cats, three kittens and five chickens. They also found two dead kittens in the house, police said.

Police said the owner surrendered two dogs and a cat to Torrington Regional Animal Control because they were sick.

There were no arrests, but police said the investigation is continuing.

NBC Connecticut tried to get a comment from someone at the home the animals were seized from, but our crew was told to leave the property.
