January 30, 2024

Connecticut State Police charged a 78-year-old woman with 55 counts of animal cruelty after searching her 2,000-square-foot Deep River property last week. Assisted by multiple agencies including Tri Town Regional Animal Control, authorities served a warrant to the home of kennel operator Jean E. Jameson Thursday following months of inquiries. A week later, law enforcement and animal control officers gained access to Jameson’s kennels. Jameson’s neighbors complained about barking dogs on her property since at least 1995, according to the Hartford Courant. The animals removed from her property are reportedly being housed in various Connecticut animal control facilities.
