3 arrested in Franklin County on animal cruelty charges

A mother and her two sons could face animal cruelty charges after 91 dogs were were found in a rural Macedonia home.

Trudie, Matthew, and Sean Casler were taken into custody Monday after sheriff’s deputies and animal control officers served a warrant. They are being held on tentative charges of cruelty to animals. Additional charges could follow.

Authorities say that the dogs were everywhere in the home — cages closets, closed off rooms, some running inside. It’s not known if the Casler’s were living in the home as well.
