(Omaha, NE) -- Two people are arrested after dozens of animals are found neglected, or dead, in a north Omaha home.
The Nebraska Humane Society says on January 24th, they received information from the Omaha Police Department that numerous animals were living in poor conditions and in various stages of neglect at a home near 45th and Burdette. NHS says officers were called to the home on an unrelated call when the concerning conditions were observed. NHS investigators requested and were granted a court-authorized search warrant to seize any animals being kept in violation of Cruelty to Animals.
During the search warrant, the NHS says their investigators recovered 88 living and 40 deceased animals including dogs and other domestic animals. NHS says some were severely neglected. Following this investigation, NHS investigators requested felony warrants for Cruelty to Animals for 31 year old Sierra Lang and 35 year old Tramaine Thomas. Lang and Thomas were arrested on Monday by members of the Metro Area Fugitive Task Force.
