A well-known property in Langley was the site of an animal seizure by the BC SPCA yesterday.
17 animals in total: 12 dogs, 4 cats and a rabbit were removed from the home of Sandra Simans, who has a history with the SPCA.
Back in September of last year, 88 animals were seized from the property.
Marcie Moriarty with the SPCA told Global News they carried out a warrant Monday after reports of neglect.
“We received concerns that there were animals that weren’t receiving care and what we did find on the property supported that conclusion.”
But Simans disputes that claim.
“There’s not an animal in this house that didn’t have food, water, a clean environment, love… I’m not a crazy, abusing human being.”
Simans was also the target of a raid back in 2012; she later sued the SPCA for defamation and won.
Moriarty says Simans will have two weeks to seek return of the animals taken from her, until then they will remain in BC SPCA care.
There’s been no decision as of yet on potential charges.
