Ingham County Animal Control seizes multiple animals from Leslie residence

On Wednesday, October 5th, 2022 Ingham County Animal Control Officers, with assistance from Michigan State Police, executed a search warrant in the 1200 block of Kinneville Road in Leslie. Officers were initially called to the residence for an unrelated complaint. Upon observing unsanitary living conditions, Animal Control Officers seized 22 cats and 44 birds from the residence including chickens, ducks, guinea fowl, a turkey, and one deceased pet rodent.

The animals will go to the animal shelter to receive proper care during the ongoing investigation of the case. If anyone would like to donate to help the care of these animals, the shelter is in need of non-clumping cat litter, wet pate cat food, and chicken feed.  

Officers will be submitting their investigations to the Ingham County Prosecutor’s office to request the issuance of possible charges.
