The remains of a dog, a cat and seven birds were taken from the Hagerstown home of a man who was sentenced to supervised probation about five years ago on animal cruelty charges, according to the Humane Society of Washington County.
John Lestitian, chief inspector for the City of Hagerstown, said 115 Wakefield Road was condemned after he and three other inspectors investigating a complaint of an odor at the home executed an administrative warrant Monday.
The Humane Society said in a press release that nine live dogs and two live cats were taken from the home. Two of the dogs were taken to a local veterinarian for fight-related injuries.
"The urine and the feces throughout the structure led to our determination that the place needs to be condemned," Lestitian said.
