Tower woman cited for neglect after animals die of starvation
The owner of a dilapidated farm near Tower where at least six animals died of starvation has been issued a misdemeanor citation for animal neglect.
Marcia Berg, 45, who owns the farm and animals on Wiseman Road in Vermilion Township, will have to appear in court at a later date to answer the charge that could bring up to a $3,000 fine and 90 days in jail.
Photos of the farm, taken by neighbors, show dead animals that appear to have starved, some in stalls filled with feces.
