Hundreds of cats seized from western Pa. shelter

Rescue workers have removed about 400 cats from a shelter in western Pennsylvania.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says it has removed the animals from an animal sanctuary in St. Marys, about 120 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

The cats are being taken to an undisclosed emergency shelter for treatment.

The ASPCA says rescue workers removed the animals from Animal Friends of Elk and Cameron Counties on Thursday.

Officials say the cats were living in overcrowded conditions on the first floor of a two-story building.

The telephone number at the sanctuary was not working Thursday and officials there could not be reached for comment..." More
