Bakersfield, CA At Approximately 2:33 pm today, Kern County Animal Control Officers, with the 597(b) crimes against animals.

Officers returned later with a search warrant to enter the premises and check the welfare of the animals.

The animals were seized and transported to the Kern County Animal Shelter.

All animals from the property are being medically evaluated and treated by the Kern County Animal Control Medical Team.
