STEELE, MO (KAIT) - A 14 month investigation leads Caruthersville Humane Society to seize 51 animals from a home Monday morning.

The warrant was served on a residence on county road 437 just north of Steele, Missouri. When humane society officials arrived, they say they found several animals in various stages of decomposition.

51 animals, including 23 dogs, 6 kittens, 16 goats and sheep and 6 horses were removed.

Caruthersville Humane Society officials say they tried to educate the residents and alleviate the situation. Unsuccessful attempts over the course of 14 months lead to the warrant.

The animals that were taken from the residence were immediately taken to the Humane Society of Missouri for treatment. According to the news release, one puppy died on the scene while others were treated for sores, fly bites and broken horns and hooves.

The case is still under investigation but the release says the owner signed a voluntary transfer after the warrant was completed.

A disposition hearing is scheduled for June 29.

Involved in the execution of the warrant and removal of the animals were the Humane Society's investigators from Caruthersville, the Humane Society of Missouri, Pemiscot County Sheriff's Deputies, the Animal Control Officer from Caruthersville and a Wardell Officer.
