Animals Reportedly Found in Severe Neglect Deserve Justice

Target: Paul J. Narducci, State Attorney for New London, Connecticut

Goal: Ensure legal consequences for those allegedly responsible for severe animal neglect.

In Ledyard, an alarming discovery was made last month when police reportedly found nine animals, including dogs, cats, a rabbit, a tortoise, and a hedgehog, living in harrowing conditions. The alleged incident, arising from a welfare check at a residence on Highland Drive, unveiled animals in extreme distress and environments reflecting potentially severe neglect. These details underscore a pressing issue that demands immediate attention and action.

According to authorities, the animals were seized after reportedly being found in conditions that no creature should ever endure. Precious Michaud and Quiana L. Durham, the residents of the home, were charged with multiple counts of cruelty to animals. These allegations paint a bleak picture of the mistreatment these innocent animals may have faced. This case brings to light the broader issues of animal welfare and the need for stringent enforcement of laws designed to protect the most vulnerable.

The need for accountability is clear. We must ensure that those allegedly responsible for such acts of neglect face the full extent of the law. Set a precedent that animal cruelty is taken seriously and met with significant legal repercussions.


Dear State Attorney Narducci,

We, a concerned community, urge you to take immediate and decisive action regarding a distressing case of suspected animal cruelty discovered in Ledyard. Nine animals were reportedly found in conditions that were nothing short of horrifying—malnourished, suffering, and housed in deplorable conditions. These allegations against Precious Michaud and Quiana L. Durham, if proven true, suggest a gross violation of both legal and ethical standards.

The severity of this apparent neglect highlights a significant breach in the duty of care owed to these animals. It is crucial that this case not only be prosecuted with the seriousness it warrants but also be used as an opportunity to uphold stringent animal welfare laws. We implore you to ensure that the allegations are thoroughly investigated and that justice is served.

By addressing this case with the gravity it deserves, you will send a strong message that animal cruelty is not tolerated in our society. We ask for your commitment to pursuing all legal avenues to hold those allegedly responsible accountable and to prevent such atrocities in the future.
