- Indiana, USA -
48-years-old MAURICE RICHARD HUFFMAN (pictured) made his first court appearance on March 13, 2023, after officials say that in June 2021, the Evansville Police Department and Animal Control went to investigate his apartment on East Iowa Street.
Authorities learned that HUFFMAN had moved to North Carolina leaving behind two cats and two guinea pigs without any food or water.
Sadly, both guinea pigs were found lifeless. The two cats were alive but looked visibly thin and the vet who examined them said one of the two was dehydrated.
Police say HUFFMAN admitted he didn’t have anyone to care for them.
HUFFMAN faces several counts of animal cruelty and is in the Vanderburgh County Jail.
Court records show that HUFFMAN’s hearing is slated to take place on April 5, 2023, at 8:30 a.m.
