Pittsfield woman expected to plead guilty to animal cruelty

Nearly one year after allegedly abandoning 15 cats during a winter storm, a Pittsfield woman is expected to plead guilty.

That’s according to our media partners at the Berkshire Eagle.

Kelly Hathaway and Arthur Raney are facing 15 counts of animal cruelty.

The pair are accused of leaving more than a dozen cats on back roads in Richmond and Lanesborough, during a snowstorm.

We have a call out to the Berkshire County District Attorney’s Office.
