WIRT – A father and son are facing a number of animal cruelty charges after New York State Police said they found nine dead animal bodies on a number of their farm in the Town of Wirt in Allegany County.

Daniel D. Hint, 55, and Joshua D. Hint, 36, were arrested on Thursday after the Allegany County SPCA and New York State Police investigated a complaint of deceased, malnourished, and neglected animals at three farm properties located on State Route 275 and County Road 8.

In total, troopers said the SPCA removed 140 other animals from the three locations.



Both men are charged with neglect of an impounded animal, improper disposal of dead animals, and failure to provide shelter for dogs left outdoors.

Troopers said they were arrested, arraigned in Wirt Town Court and released on their own recognizance.

The pair is due to reappear in that court later this month.

  1. They shouldn’t have been given bail and made to sit like the last man who hanged his 1 dog! How is that justice,9-1 really?! This is the kind of thing that causes people to become irate and create an uproar. People like this should get the same treatment they gave these animals….publically. What a disgrace…may the law have no mercy. Disgusted!

  2. The penalties must be stricter! if it’s a felony now to leave animals out in the cold than enforce it and stop with the slap on wrist and back on the streets to do it again. It’s more than cold it neglect worst imaginable. district attorneys wake up!
