Animal hoarding investigation
The Friends Animal Shelter in Newport has issued a statement on social media calling on area residents to assist in a recent case of animal hoarding. Shelter Manager Elisha Henry said animal control officers on Friday responded to a mobile home in the Flatwoods area, where a large number of animals were found. “Calling all rescues, shelters and fosters... we have a massive hoarding case in Cocke County. It is beyond any description. Around 100 cats total, litter boxes are so full that there are maggots crawling around,” the manager said. “The home and cages are full of fleas, flies and maggots. The smell is enough to knock you over.” Henry said 13 cats were removed on Friday and animal control officers will return to the home today to pick up additional animals. “We do not have the room for them. Please share, please help,” Henry said. No charges have been filed as the investigation continues.
