Mariposa County Sheriff's Office | SubmittedFriday, March 14, 2014 - 9 a.m. - More than 50 animals have been placed in new homes, and a Child Protective Services investigation launched, after Mariposa County Animal Control officers said they found the animals uncared for and hungry.

Captain Sterling Cramer of the Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office said the March 5, 2014 discovery and removal of 56 animals, including goats, snakes and emus, came after Animal Control officers conducted a door-to-door informational visit to residents in the north Don Pedro area of Mariposa County.

According to Cramer, officers first noticed an underweight female dog running free and multitudes of trash in a  yard on Chicharra Way.
