More dead goats found at farm of pair charged with cruelty

CORNWALL, Conn. (AP) - The melting snow has revealed the frozen carcasses of more than a dozen more dead goats at a Cornwall, Connecticut, farm whose operators have been charged with animal cruelty.

More than 70 dead animals have been found at the Butterfield Farm Co. since the state Department of Agriculture seized 74 sickly goats from the property in January.

Farm owner Buddy Hurlburt says that carcasses have been turning up in "nooks and crannies" of the property.

Tara Bryson and Michael Hearl, both of West Suffield, are facing prosecution an animal cruelty charges in Bantam Superior Court in Litchfield. They are free on bond and have declined to comment.

The dozens of animals taken from the farm are now at a state animal rehabilitation facility in Niantic.
