Edmonson shelter director charged with animal cruelty
BEE SPRING, Ky. (AP) – About 60 animals have been rescued from a western Kentucky animal shelter where authorities say they were being underfed and not given enough water.
The Daily News of Bowling Green (http://bit.ly/22IcefS ) reports that 50-year-old Kim Carroll, of Bee Spring, was charged Friday with second-degree animal cruelty following the discovery of dozens of malnourished animals, as well as one dead dog and three dead cats. Several other animals have since been euthanized.
Owensboro Humane Society humane society member Cheryl Bartlett says she alerted deputies after one of her children discovered a dead dog in an outdoor kennel.
The Edmonson shelter had taken in animals via contracts with governments of Edmonson, Hart, Grayson and Metcalfe counties.
It’s unclear whether Carroll has an attorney.
