Owner of Chicago-area animal shelter found guilty
CHICAGO – The owner of a suburban Chicago animal sanctuary has been found guilty of neglect and cruelty over conditions at the facility.
The Chicago Tribune reports that a jury found 43-year-old Dawn Hamill guilty late Friday after four hours of deliberations.
The Tinley Park woman was charged in February 2011 after officers from the Cook County Sheriff's Department found dead animals at her facility. They also seized 63 dogs, 31 cats and six rabbits and removed 30 horses, ponies, sheep, goats and llamas.
