Litch­field (AP) — Con­necti­cut State Po­lice say two dead kit­tens were among 30 an­i­mals seized from a Litch­field home as troop­ers ex­e­cuted a search war­rant on an an­i­mal ne­glect com­plaint.

Troop­ers say 16 rab­bits, four adult cats, three kit­tens and five chick­ens were found alive at the Beach Street prop­erty Wed­nes­day.

Au­thor­i­ties say Tor­ring­ton an­i­mal con­trol of­fi­cials re­ceived an anony­mous com­plaint of an­i­mal ne­glect on Mon­day and went to the prop­erty with state po­lice. Of­fi­cials say two dogs and a cat that were in poor health were sur­ren­dered to au­thor­i­ties that day.

Of­fi­cials ap­plied for a search war­rant af­ter the ini­tial visit and ex­e­cuted it on Wed­nes­day.

The an­i­mals are un­der vet­eri­nary care.

State po­lice say the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing. No ar­rests have been an­nounced.
