Dead animals found in Youngstown home of burglary suspects

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Authorities and Humane Agents are investigating after seizing a number of dead and wounded animals from a home on Monday.

The Humane Society was contacted by the dog warden after the landlord of the home reported animal cruelty.

Six deceased cats were taken from the Division Street home. Two dogs who were in fair condition were also seized, as well as a bird that was being fostered.

Humane Agents reported animal feces scattered throughout the entire top floor of the home.

"When the landlord came to check on the property the two dogs were here, they're in relatively decent shape, but the place is filthy and we also found six cats that were deceased" said Humane Agent Christopher Flak.

The occupants of the house were arrested last week for burglary charges on Turner Road in Austintown.

26-year-old Sarah Daniel, 22-year-old Taylor Carnell, and  24-year-old Christina Snyder have court hearings set for Wednesday.

Police also found drug paraphernalia, needles and other possible stolen material during their search.

Authorities say the investigation is ongoing, but the suspects could face up to eight charges of animal cruelty.
