173 Charges Of Inhumane Treatment Of Animals Filed

September 10, 2009, 4:54 PM by Ben Dunsmoor

173 Charges Of Inhumane Treatment Of Animals Filed
A Hurley man faces more than 100 charges in connection with a major dog raid.

It's taken a week but 55-year-old Dan Christensen of Hurley is charged with 173 counts of inhumane treatment of an animal after a raid on his property last week.

All of the animals are being held at the Turner County Fairgrounds indefinitely until the case is settled in court.

Rosey Quinn of Second Chance Rescue, who started the investigation, says it took a week to file charges because of the large number of dogs that were seized.

"The reason it's taken so long is that's a lot of dogs to inventory, register, go through vet reports. Normally, it doesn't take this long but those are a lot of animals we need to take care of and get everything together to turn in," Quinn said.

Charges were originally filed against Christensen's son as well but those were dropped Thursday afternoon.

We called the Turner County States Attorney about the charges and even stopped by her office but she hasn't returned our calls. The attorney for Christensen hasn't returned our calls either.
