Portage Township, Cambria County

Animal cruelty

A local couple faces a combined 190 charges after state police discovered 30 flea-infested cats living in their urine- and feces-laden residence along Holly Street.

One of the pets was so badly flea-bitten that it died after being handed over for care at Ebensburg Veterinary Hospital, according to a report.

Troopers from Ebensburg uncovered the situation June 27 and filed criminal complaints Wednesday against Raymond Skelly, 51, and Zoanne Skelly, 50, of Portage.

Each was charged with 30 misdemeanor counts of neglect of animals for inadequate shelter or protection, 30 summary counts of failing to have each animal vaccinated against rabies between 4 and 12 weeks of age, and 30 summary counts of cruelty to animals.

Troopers filed the papers before District Judge John Prebish Jr., who scheduled a hearing in the case for Aug. 14.
