Dozens of farm animals seized

October 26, 2011

Marion County Animal Care and Control seized more than 80 farm animals Tuesday from a home on the southwest side of Indianapolis. About 65 chickens, 10 turkeys, peacocks, at least three horses and some dogs were taken from the home because of care and zoning issues. Control officers have been to the home on Chelsea Road more than 10 times since 2008, they said. The animals were treated and placed in a pasture in the 2600 block of South Harding Street.
