BARNET, Vt. -Responding to a report of animal cruelty, authorities found dozens of living and dead animals in a home infested with fleas, maggots and rotting carcasses. The owners _ a woman and her adult son _ were charged with animal cruelty.
“It has to be the worst case of animal abuse in the history of Vermont,” according to Animal Control Officer Josephine Guertin.
Five cats, two ferrets, a lizard, a gecko, a rabbit, a python, a gerbil, a tarantula, a chinchilla, a guinea pig, a tortoise, a mouse and a malnourished dog were rescued. Found dead were an iguana, a white rat, a hedgehog and at least 15 cats and kittens in various stages of decomposition.
Also found was a decomposing animal of unknown type in a pot on a stove. More than a dozen partially frozen dead animals were found in a refrigerator freezer.
The animals had been denied food and medical care, according to Sgt. Bill O’Hare, of the Caledonia County Sheriff’s Department, who responded to the scene.
Pauline Harpin, 70, and son Paul Harpin, 41, were charged with animal cruelty and cited into Vermont District Court on Sept. 8.
“The stench was overwhelming, between the urine and feces,” said O’Hare. “As soon as you step in, you’re covered head to toe with fleas.”
On Wednesday, O’Hare and three deputies served a search warrant on the house after receiving a report of severe animal cruelty and threats allegedly made by Paul Harpin to shoot anyone who tried to take the animals.
