Animals removed from Tiverton home

By News Staff

Animal Control Officers raided another home Thursday afternoon, this time in Tiverton.

Police and members of the Rhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals (RISCPA) were on scene of the home on Bulgermarsh Road where two goats and a llama were taken from the residence.

Dead birds and other decomposed animals were also found on the property outside the house.

The RISPCA says the live goats that remained in the back yard of the home in a pen are being monitored by Tiverton Police until a proper facility is found for them.

RISPCA believes that this case of animal cruelty is related to an incident in New Bedford Wednesday night, where two animal hoarders were arrested.

23-year-old Sabrina Harding, and 24-year-old Jake Brousseau, were charged with animal cruelty for keeping dozens of malnourished and dead, decaying animals in their South 2nd Street home.

The RISPCA says they have responded to the property before, but it was not for the same owners.
