UPDATE: Animal Control Seizes Dozens of Animals from Bitely Home
Police say the arrested couple would spay and neuter the cats themselves without a veterinary license.
Animal control found 50-60 cats at a home in Lilley Township near Bitely in Newaygo County Friday afternoon.
Along with the cats, animal control took a dog, two rabbits and a baby skunk, along with a dead fawn and a dozen dead cats in the freezer.
Neighbors say they were told the home was the sight of a cat foster home.
Police say many of the animals were living in horrible conditions and underfed.
The couple are scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in White Cloud.
