Fourteen dead cats found in dog crates in Caledonia

  • 0

CALEDONIA — Fourteen cats were found deceased in two dog crates outside on a foreclosed Caledonia property, according to the Caledonia Police Department.

Last Wednesday, Caledonia Police responded to the 5500 block of Six Mile Road after restoration company staff working at the property saw the two cages with the animals inside, which was covered by a blanket.

Inside the cages, an officer found 14 cats, ages 1 to 4, which were reportedly packed into the wire enclosure that was made for a larger dog. The animals had reportedly been left outside during last week’s snowstorm.

Police said the responsible party is a 57-year-old man, formerly of Caledonia, who was evicted from the property. The man had prior issues with police after an animal on the property wasn’t being tended to.

The man was expected to be charged sometime Wednesday.
