A recreational vehicle filled with 74 cats has resulted in cruelty to animals charges against the RV owner.
Larimer County Sheriff's deputies discovered the animals during a welfare check in the Riverbend Campground in Loveland on Friday evening. The deputies noticed a foul odor coming from the vehicle and obtained permission from the owner to search it.
They found the cats and kittens inside and called the Larimer County Humane Society.
Examination of all the felines determined that most of them have ringworm and upper respiratory infections.
Deputies booked Alexis Binns, 38, with 74 misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals. She was also charged with felony aggravated motor vehicle theft after deputies said they found a stolen Fort Collins Police Services vehicle in the yard.
The cats and kittens are being cared for by the humane society, which is accepting donations for their care.
The Larimer Humane Society is presently caring for all cats and kittens and has stated it would advise the public if and when the animals are offered for adoption. If citizens are interested in assisting at this time, monetary donations are welcome at the Humane Society.
