May 24, 2012

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Authorities are assessing the health of 29 animals seized last week from a southern Morgan County property near the Virginia line, Morgan County Animal Control Officer Jason Pearce said Thursday.

The 21 dogs, two goats, three rats, a pot-bellied pig, cat and miniature horse were seized after authorities investigated a complaint about the welfare of the animals, Pearce said.

No charges have been filed, Pearce said.

The animals, whose conditions vary, are being kept at the county’s facility along W.Va. 9, Pearce said.

The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday that the case remains under investigation.
