NORTH SPOKANE COUNTY-- SCRAPS officials served a search warrant to a North Spokane County home after complaints regarding dozens of animals.
They served the warrant Friday morning to a house in the 42500 block of North Bruce in Elk.
Horses, cows, llamas, sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens, and dogs were all seized from the property.
Officials tell us roughly 75 animals lived on the property.
Officials say the conditions aren't clean and the owners weren't able to contain the animals in some cases.
We're told the animals' owner faces animal cruelty charges. If convicted, she could face five years in prison and a $10,000.
The Animal Protection Officers are responding to complaints of alleged animal abuse.
Seized animals will be taken to an emergency shelter.
If this case is determined to violate the Revised Code of Washington pertaining to animal cruelty, the people responsible could face five years in prison and a $10,000 fine for a first degree crime. A violation in the second degree could mean $1,000 in fines or up to 90 days in jail.
