BULLHEAD CITY–Nearly 80 cats were seized from a Bullhead City home on Tuesday afternoon following a tip to animal welfare.

Bullhead City Police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said officers with the Animal Care & Welfare received the tip on April 27 regarding a home in the 2500 block of Country Club Place.

“So far, there have been 79 cats removed from the home,” said Fromelt. “There were some dead cats found and most were feral and sick.”

Fromelt said about 20 of the cats have since been taken to the Low Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic in Kingman to help them get adopted.

The owner was not cited, Fromelt added, due in part with her cooperating with the Animal Care & Welfare officers.

No further information was available.
