TOWN OF CRAWFORD – A 70-year-old Pine Bush woman has been arrested on 26 counts of animal cruelty following a lengthy investigation and execution of a search warrant.

The Hudson Valley SPCA Humane Law Enforcement Division in cooperation with State Police arrested Iren Ehrhardt of Rainbow Lane on Saturday.

An unlicensed animal breeder, she kept her animals confined in bedrooms and the kitchen in small cages where they could not adequately move, in unsanitary conditions, without wholesome air, inoculations or other veterinary care, SPCA officials said.

Persons with information about this case or other incidents of animal abuse are urged to call the Hudson Valley SPCA Law Enforcement Division at 855-448-2548.
