Kittens found abandoned in tied plastic shopping bag

Niagara County Sheriff's deputies were called to the are of the former Summit Park Mall, 6929 Williams Road, Tuesday morning for a report of abandoned kittens.

A woman said she was walking her dog behind the mall about 8 a.m. when she heard what she thought was kittens crying/meowing in a high-grass, wooded area. The woman thought it was strange and began looking around. 

The woman said she found a plastic shopping bag tied tightly. When she opened it, she found it contained three kittens. The woman said they were all crying and appeared hungry so she called police.

The deputy said all three kittens appeared in good health. An SPCA of Niagara official was called out to pick up the kittens.

The deputy said he checked the area for anyone with information but came up empty.

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
