EAST BAY TOWNSHIP, MI — A man accused of animal abuse is also facing repercussions related to cleaning up the burn on his property, which was in violation of a local waste ordinance, WPBN/WGTU reports.
Raymond Feagles, 72, who pleaded not guilty to a charge of animal abuse and neglect, was billed more than $37,000 for costs related to cleaning up his East Bay Township property, according to The report. The front yard was littered with over 10 vehicles and an RV; the residence was condemned, a township official said during a court hearing. Dogs lived among the trash.
