Humane Society gains custody of 200 animals of Seneca woman

March 9, 2009

A Newton County judge has awarded custody of more than 200 animals that were taken from a woman in Seneca last month to the Humane Society of Missouri, the Newton County court confirmed this afternoon.

The dogs and cats seized from Margaret Bond after the raid on her property on Feb. 19 have been awarded to the Humane Society of Missouri, and a Bengal tiger seized in the raid has been awarded to the National Tiger Sanctuary near St. Louis.

Judge Tim Perigo made the ruling after a hearing this morning at the Newton County Courthouse, his secretary said.

Investigators said the animals were living in dirty conditions, lacked water and were in poor health.
