More than 70 animals, including donkeys, seized from home in Cypress area

More than 70 animals have been seized from a home on Grant Road in the Cypress area, according to Precinct 1 Constable Al Rosen.
During the seizure, authorities rescued 32 horses and donkeys, 34 rabbits, four horses, four cats and three dogs. Officials said the animals are suffering from malnutrition, dehydration and a lack of proper hoof care. The Houston SPCA said multiple reports of animal cruelty involving the address came into their hotline.The owner claimed to be raising the donkeys for the Somalian Government, talking with them on a secret phone and them agreeing to feed the donkeys. She said it was an attempt to rebuild the herd in that country. Constable Rosen doesn’t believe the claim and believes she is in some sort of distress. He said they will look at getting her help but she is being charged with animal cruelty. The donkeys and horses will be taken to Houston SPCA’s Hempstead property for treatment and care. The rabbits, cats and dogs will be brought to the location on Portway Drive, SPCA officials said. The owner faces charges of animal neglect.

    Maybe she should try raising Camels for the Somalian government. They can go much longer without water than these poor creatures. Now hopefully they’ll all survive the trip to the pound as well.
