A home with over 40 dead and alive cats and seven emaciated cows in Broward County is being investigated. Officers received a call in late May about suspected animal abuse off 44th street and Hiatus Road.
Police say that no one was home at the search time, but over several days, 27 cats had been found alive, and five were dead. Police are being meticulous with their search to ensure the safety of the animals.
The suspect, Rafael Guevera, has been arrested on animal-involved charges in the past and has been connected to this case. The police are conducting an ongoing search in the home for more animals. They suspect there could still be cats in the walls.
