Woman face charges in Onalaska cat burglary

Posted: Updated:
LA CROSSE (AP) -- A 46-year-old woman is facing burglary and damage charges for allegedly breaking into an Onalaska animal shelter to steal back her cats.

The La Crosse Tribune reports Lee Ann Shore smashed a window Sunday night and took 15 cats, including eight that animal control officers had seized from her La Crosse apartment.

Humane Society officials suspected the Shore because she left behind a teal jacket they had seen her wearing.

According to criminal charges filed Friday, investigators later discovered 12 of the missing cats were rounded up by a no-kill shelter in a Holmen field.

Coulee Region Humane Society director Heather Hankins said two adult cats and one kitten remain at large but the recovered animals are doing well.
