A Kingsland woman was arrested on a charge of animal cruelty after police found 17 animals trapped in an empty house on Thursday.
Amanda Marie Ramirez, 34, was arrested Friday and charged with cruelty/torture to live stock animals, a state jail felony, after Marble Falls Police discovered the animals on her property in the 1600 block of Northwood in Marble Falls.
"On Wednesday a Marble Falls Code Enforcement Officer went to the 1600 block of Northwood to speak to a resident about an overgrown yard,” Marble Falls Police Captain Glenn Hanson said. "He learned from the neighbors that no one resided in the house, but the owner reportedly returned every day to feed her animals.”Police said that as the officer approached the house, the stench was "overwhelming.” The officer looked through the windows and saw several animals living in cages inside the home.
