ROOT, N.Y. – State Police say the owner of the Flat Creek Border Collies Kennel faces an additional charge.
According to authorities, Herbert Weich has been charged with failure to provide sustenance on Tuesday under Section 353 of the NYS Agriculture & Markets Law.
Earlier in January, collies were removed from Flat Creek Kennels in Montgomery County, owned by Herbert Weich, while several on the property. He was charged with a violation of the Agriculture & Markets Law section 353-B(2), for failure to provide adequate shelter.
On January 22, 2014, a search warrant was executed at the Flat Creek Border Collies Kennel on Rappa Road in the Town of Root, Montgomery County.
In conjunction with executing the warrant, 13 dogs were removed from that location and are being cared for at various locations in the immediate area. As a result of this removal, there are no remaining dogs in the outside kennel area at Flat Creek Border Collies Kennel.
Earlier in the month, a judge was supposed to decide if the owner of the local kennel had complied with mandates after dogs were removed from his property, but an investigation into the health of the collies has postponed the court date.
From January 8, 2014 through January 11, 2014, the Valley Veterinary Associates examined the animals, finding 10 collies to be emaciated, 13 dogs thin, and only seven dogs at an ideal body weight.
