David Williford held the animals in very bad conditions. Dozens of rabbits, guinea pigs, rats and dogs were rescued from his property. The basement and backyard were filled with blood spatters, filth and carcasses.
The animals that were still alive were rescued by the authorities which described the animals as being desperate for food and water.
Several dogs were upstairs in the attic, locked in cages with absolutely no light, no water, no food and no warm bedding. When they were rescued the animals jumped into the arms of animal control officers.
Investigators first got wind of the case when someone came to stay with Williford. When that person threatened to report the abuse the man threatened him. The witness says he fears for his life but reported him anyway.
Williford's defense attorney says it was simply an unsanitary butchery for meat that Williford intended to eat, and has eaten routinely. Williford got all the animals using Craigslist.
Williford is now held in jail on $150, 000 bail!
Please demand the maximum penalty for this man who is guilty of inhumanely destroying God knows how many animals! He mistreated, neglected and destroyed animals! Demand the maximum penalty and see that he gets severely punished for his actions!
What investigators found at an Olympia man's home is the worst case of animal abuse that they have ever seen.
