Wayne county sheriffs deputies still without contract

ONTARIO, N.Y. (WROC) — State police responded to a home in Wayne County for an animal abuse complaint.

Officers obtained a search warrant after the homeowner was uncooperative.

Responding officers then found 98 chickens, 11 dogs, five cats and two rabbits at the home located on Ontario Center Road.

The animals were allegedly living in poor living conditions and have since been taken to a local animal shelter.

Following an investigation, state police arrested Dawn Keith on Friday for Cruelty to Animals, a class A misdemeanor.

Keith was arrested and processed at the State Police in Williamson and is scheduled to appear in the town of Ontario Court later this month.
