SPCA takes neglected goats; owner charged with cruelty

A Cattaraugus County woman surrendered her five goats to the SPCA after being charged Friday with animal cruelty.

Connie M. Lipka, 60, of Ashford is accused of failing to provide adequate food, clean water, sufficient shelter and necessary medical care for the goats, according to the Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Office.

The goats, located at Lipka's home at 5199 Folts Road, were surrendered to the SPCA and are undergoing medical evaluation.

The investigation into Lipka, ongoing since early January, was conducted by the Sheriff's Office and the SPCA, and resulted in the misdemeanor charges against her.
