Thyme & Sage civil suit settled


Madison (WKOW) --- The Richland County District Attorney's Office has reached a settlement in the case against an animal shelter in Richland County.

Jennifer Petkus settled with the State in her civil case against the Thyme & Sage Ranch.

In the agreement Petkus has agreed to surrender all but 4 of the animals to the Dane County Humane Society.

378 animals were seized at the ranch in May.

Now the Richland County District Attorney will be able to focus on the upcoming criminal case against Petkus.

Petkus is charged with 39 misdemeanors and is scheduled to begin trial in February 2010.

The four animals returned will be given to Petkus' parents who will be subject to ongoing monitoring.

The other animals will be up for adoption in the next few weeks. You can check here for available dogs daily at the Dane County Humane Society.
