A Minnesota woman is facing animal cruelty charges after she allegedly locked several pets into various rooms of a house and left them to starve to death. According to Fox 9 News, 34-year-old Kuarin Mary Lind admitted to the authorities that she has a problem with hoarding, and that she knew of two dogs and a cat that had died inside of a house on the 16000 block of Andrie Street NW in Ramsey.
The authorities were alerted to the horrific situation inside of the Andrie Street home on Friday after a neighbor’s request for a welfare check. Officers who responded to the house discovered that it was strewn with garbage, and they could smell something rotting inside.
After gaining access to the interior, the officers discovered multiple deceased pets behind the closed doors inside. One of the abandoned dogs was still alive and had an identification tag with a phone number which led them to Lind. Lind is facing a charge for cruelty to animals and one count for torturing animals. She could face up to two years behind bars if she is convicted.
