Sprakers man charged in kennel case; some dogs surrendered

Tuesday, January 07, 2014 - Updated: 6:08 PM

This news release was just issued by the New York State Police in connection with a high-profile animal neglect complaint in Sprakers:

"On December 31, 2013, State Police in Fonda received a complaint of dogs being kept outside without adequate food, water or shelter at a location in the town of Root, New York. Members of the New York State Police responded and investigated the complaint, interviewing the property owner at his Rappa Road, Sprakers address. Primitive housing, food and water were observed on the property and no animals displayed signs of distress or appeared to be in immediate danger."

"As the investigation continued, and based upon the recommendations of a licensed veterinarian, and consultation with the New York State Attorney General's Office, the owner of the property, HERBERT WEICH, was charged with a violation of the Agriculture & Markets Law section 353-B(2), for failure to provide adequate shelter."

"A preliminary hearing was held in Montgomery County Court on January 7, 2014 to determine if Mr. Weich’s dogs should be seized. An agreement was reached and prior to the hearing, Mr. Weich volunteered to relinquish some of the dogs to the Montgomery County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals while more substantial shelters were constructed."

"The New York State Police are continuing to work with the New York State Attorney General’s Office, the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office and the Montgomery County SPCA as the case proceeds."

"Mr. Weich will answer the Agriculture and Markets Law charge in the Town of Root Justice Court on January 13th."
