Hundreds of Animals Seized From Pa. Mill

EMMAUS, Pa.-- Authorities were back out at a shut down Lehigh County, PA kennel Wednesday night - a day after hundreds of dogs were removed.

The PSPCA says four emaciated monkeys are being removed from the "Almost Heaven Kennel."
Kennel owner Derbe Eckert now faces new charges of animal cruelty.

Tuesday, the state and the Humane Society removed nearly 300 dogs after winning a court battle. The state shut down what they say was a puppy mill.

Humane Society workers say when they removed the dogs, they spotted other animals on the property that showed signs of abuse - animals that included monkeys cats birds and horses.

That prompted the SPCA to head there Wednesday night with a search warrant.

So far, they have removed 20 cats, six dogs, two horses and four monkeys.
