Authorities Investigating Allegations of Frozen Kittens at Spencer County Shelter

ROCKPORT, Ind. — Authorities are investigating allegations in Spencer County of animal abuse in the form of freezing kittens that were still alive as a way to euthanize them.

The initial investigation was led by the Spencer County Sheriff's Office, who refused to comment about the case to the Courier & Press. Officials only have said they turned the investigation over to the Prosecutor's Office due to a potential conflict of interest. 


Former Spencer County Animal Shelter worker Bridget Woodson said during her 3.5 months working at the county's shelter, she'd been asked on two separate occasions to put still-alive kittens in a plastic bag and then into a freezer to kill them at the direction of the Spencer County Animal Control Officer. A call to the officer was unanswered as was a text message. Calls to the shelter were unanswered, and the shelter's Facebook page has been taken down.
