Amsterdam Man Arrested For Animal Cruelty
A man who collected 50 cats was arrested for animal cruelty. The shocking case of animal hoarding led Montgomery County Sheriff’s to the home of 58-year-old Paul Prill, where he had the half-a-hundred cats at Thayer Road in Amsterdam. Many of the cats were walking in several feet of feces and garbage when sheriffs arrived. Prill faces 10 counts of animal cruelty. Prill says he just became overwhelmed by the cats after they starting having kittens. The county SPCA assisted in rescuing the cats.
