FIRST ON 3: Animal hoarding case in Red Bank

Posted: Updated:
HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

A substantial case of animal hoarding has been uncovered in Hamilton County Friday.

The home, which is condemned, is located on Oakland Terrace in Hamilton County.

So far, 17 animals have been seized. The house is filled with debris. Those on hand tell Channel 3 there are “inches” of filth on the floor.

Humane Educational Society workers are using oxygen masks to combat the stench.

The call originated as a child welfare check, which then prompted further investigation.

Details on this developing story are still coming into the Channel 3 newsroom.
