Two arrested in Harrison County on animal cruelty charges

Two Saucier residents are charged with five counts each of animal cruelty.

Wednesday, Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson arrested 57-year-old Sharon Bertok and 50-year-old Daniel Bertok after animal control officers found several species of animals living in deplorable conditions at their home on Wright Road in Saucier.

A total of 108 animals were taken from the property including 69 dogs, seven cats, one pale fox, one hedgehog, one skunk, 15 birds, one monkey, one pig, five goats, a miniature donkey, and six miniature horses.

The dogs, cats, the hedgehog, and the birds are in the care of the Humane Society of South Mississippi and are reportedly doing okay.

Some are expected to be up for adoption within the next few days.
