Clinton Family Gives up 33 Animals to Humane Society
A family in central Maine has given up 33 animals that lived with them inside their mobile home to officials with the Humane Society Waterville Area.
Animal Control Officer Chris Martinez tells The Morning Sentinel that the animals included nine ducks, five rabbits, eight cats, two ferrets, two chinchillas, three parakeets, three finches and a pygmy goat.
Martinez says all of the critters stayed inside the home except for the rabbits, and they were all healthy despite living in less-than-ideal conditions. The family surrendered the animals on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The family of three, a woman and her two sons, voluntarily signed over the animals and no charges will be filed.
Humane Society Executive Director Lisa Smith says this was a case of good intentions gone bad. (AP)
