Md. Man Charged With 134 Counts of Animal Cruelty

Posted:

PASADENA, Md. (AP)- A 21-year-old man has been charged with 134 counts of animal cruelty after numerous creatures, including a kinkajou and a chinchilla, were removed from his Pasadena home.

Shane Taylor was served a criminal warrant on Tuesday, court documents show.

Earlier this month, police and animal control officers searched Taylor's home and found aquatic species, snakes, dogs, turtles, birds, chickens and geese, a goat and a pig. A kinkajou, a rainforest animal that resembles a ferret, was also removed.

Officials say many of the animals were without food or drinking water.

A dead rabbit and several dead quail were also found.
