A pair of Moorseville, Mo. residents went before a judge June 26th for arraignment on allegations of animal neglect.

Anita Frazier, 59, and Michael Blomenkamp, 66, were arrested in March following a warranted search of their residence in the 800 block of Cherry Street regarding an investigation of alleged Animal Neglect.

According to a press release, the allegations related to the conditions within and around the home. The deputies were required to wear Hazardous Material Full Body Suits due to the volume of rotting trash, urine, feces, and possibly mold inside the home. Some of the officers were noted as vomiting outside the residence.

The search resulted in the seizure of 13 dogs/puppies from the home. The investigation also revealed a full size abandoned freezer/refrigerator on the property.

Frazier pleaded guilty on the 26th and was ordered to pay $416 in total fines and court costs.

Blomekamp’s docket was removed due to confidentiality.
