Animals taken from Bonne Terre shelter

BONNE TERRE, MO (KRCU) - Animal care inspectors from the Missouri Department of Agriculture worked with the St. Francois County Sheriff’s Department to remove more than 120 dogs and 60 cats from a Bonne Terre facility on Tuesday.

The facility operated under the name The St. Francois Society.

The Animal Care Facilities Act license was revoked after inspections revealed gross negligence for animal welfare.

The animals were taken to the Humane Society of Missouri’s Headquarters in St. Louis.
