Reed

UPDATE: HENDERSON, Ky (11/20/17) — Henderson County Sheriff's Office reported all animals seized from a property last month in Reed have been assessed and monitored by a local consulting veterinarian.

Through observation and diagnostic testing, it was determined that the chickens have two forms of mycoplasma diseases, according to the report. These diseases are not treatable or curable and only affect poultry.

Edmund Thompson with the Kentucky State Veterinary Office reviewed the findings and determined the chickens needed to be humanely euthanized to prevent further suffering and to control the spread of the diseases on the foster farm.

A State Veterinary Team monitored by Dr. Beth Johnson DVM did an onsite assessment and determined all of the poultry seized from the Stogner Farm needed to be humanely euthanized by the trained sttate team, HCSO indicated.

The report also listed Johnson determined this to be the safest course of action for the seized poultry and for the other animals on the foster farm. The consulting veterinarian will continue to monitor and assess the remaining animals until they are ready for placement.

Deputies were called to aid the Henderson Humane Society at a property on Chase Road in Reed Oct. 24, where more than 400 animals were found living in extremely bad conditions on the 10-acre property, according to authorities. Deputies and animal control officers revealed finding the pens and houses for the animals in disrepair, and covered in layers of feces. They also reported finding about 100 dead animals mixed in the cages with live animals. The animals were removed for evaluation and care at that time.
