Alleged Animal Hoarder Arrested in Colorado
GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — A woman who has been accused of hoarding dogs in California and Wyoming is under arrest in Colorado.
Sixty-four-year-old Kimi Peck was being held in the Weld County jail Tuesday, a day after being arrested for one misdemeanor count of animal cruelty. Investigators say one of her dogs was emaciated.
Her arrest came three days after she voluntarily surrendered 53 dogs she had been transporting in a trailer in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reported she was allowed to keep four others.
In 2005 in southern California, she was accused of keeping Chihuahua rescue dogs in filthy conditions.
Sheriff's bureau chief Steve Reams said Peck was arrested because of the previous allegations of animal hoarding and because it's not clear where she lives. It's not clear if she has a lawyer.
