Dogs Seized from Trenton Home for Second Time this Month

web posted June 28, 2014

TRENTON For the second time since June 11, three dogs have been seized from a Sparrow Lane home due to complains of continuous barking and abhorrent living conditions for the dogs. As Edgefield Daily reported on June 13, the dogs were seized by a Sheriff's Deputy investigating a noise complaint and found the dogs chained to trees and only green water covered in dead bugs to drink.

According to a report in that case, the dogs were chained to trees, had no food and were unable to reach any shelter. A "show cause" hearing was said to be held in Magistrate Court in order for the owner to have the dogs returned. A search of online court records show no case being filed against the owner at this time.

The dogs were, however; returned to the owner.

On Thursday, another investigation was undertaken after several complaints of the dogs barking constantly and still being kept in the same condition as before. The dogs were observed for over 30 minutes and the officer noted that none of the dogs could reach shelter from the heat, water or food and were still chained to the trees.

The conditions the dogs were being kept in were photographed for evidence.

Animal Control was called to the home and the dogs were seized for a second time. The dogs owner, 32-year-old Tamera Bafford, was not at the scene at the time. According to an incident report, a charge of the county's nuisance ordinance was going to be delivered to the owner later in the day.

In the first seizure of the dogs, the incident report cited "animal cruelty" as one of the "incident types" on the report.
