Minn. Dog Kennel Owner Charged With Animal NeglectThe owner of a northern Minnesota breeding operation where more than 130 dogs were seized earlier this month is charged with misdemeanor animal neglect. The Cass County prosecutor's office said Monday it filed a nine-count criminal complaint against 60-year-old Deborah Rowell. The complaint says when officers executed a search warrant at Rowell's kennel in Pine River on July 16, they found improper enclosures, inadequate ventilation, improper dog houses and inadequate shade and water.
