Thirteen animals, including dogs, horses and donkeys, and a teenager are rescued from a home in Windsor after neighbors complain about deplorable living conditions.
The Broome Sheriff's deputies arrested two adults living there, and removed a 13-year-old girl from the home by Child Protective Services.
Colin Zeidensten-Wilson and Jenn Xancada, both 32 and of Windsor, are charged with misdemeanors endangering the welfare of a child and animal cruelty, and unlawful possession of marijuana.
Deputies said they arrived on the property around 10 a.m. Monday with a search warrant to find two horses malnourished and with visible sores. That prompted authorities to remove all 13 animals from the property.
"The next step for us here is getting these animals seized and into areas where they can be better taken care of," said Sgt. Jason Ellis.
Investigators said the conditions for the child and the animals were unberable.
Neighbors say the trailer is in such poor condition, the family has been living behind the property in a tent for the past six months..." More & video
