TOWN OF MARYLAND – The stench could be smelled for a mile.
More than two dozen dead cows in various states of decay were found in a barn on Route 7 in the Town of Maryland last night, after Otsego County Sheriff’s deputies were alerted to the conditions on the farm.
“It appears they all starved to death,” said Sheriff Richard J. Devlin Jr. “There was no food or water. It’s despicable.”
15 live cattle, as well as goats and pigs, were seized from the farm, and another 17 were put into the pasture while arrangements for relocation were made.
ONEONTA – Three men were arrested Tuesday night after Oneonta police executed a search warren at 300 Main Street and allegedly found cocaine and LSD in the residence.
