Fond du Lac prosecutor mulls animal-mistreatment charges


FOND DU LAC (WKOW) – A man who had 68 Siberian huskies removed from his property earlier this year could face charges from prosecutors in Fond du Lac County.

District attorney Dan Kaminsky said the sheriff's department recommended 226 charges, including counts of mistreatment of animals and failure to provide food and water.

Authorities visited the man's property in May after looking for a stray calf wandering in the area.  Officers who visited the dog-breeding farm in Van Dyne reported some dead animals and dozens of animals in various stages of starvation.

Kaminsky said his office is still reviewing the case.

According to Fond du Lac Report, three dogs had to be euthanized.  The other dogs were taken to the Fond du Lac Humane Society and almost all have been adopted.
