TIVERTON,R.I.(AP) — An animal cruelty investigation in Massachusetts has led authorities to a second home in Rhode Island.
Tiverton police say they discovered chickens, ducks, goats and a llama without access to water or food outside a burned out and condemned home. Several dead chickens and other animals also were found on the property.
Police say the discovery stems from the same investigation that led to the arrest of a New Bedford Massachusetts couple on Thursday.
Police charged 23-year-old Sabrina Harding and 24-year-old Jake Brousseau with animal cruelty after finding 23 dead animals and another 23 that were sick inside their New Bedford apartment.
Both are being held without bail and it is not clear if they have hired attorneys.
