A New Berlin woman is charged with cruelty to animals after a search warrant was executed at her home.

The Chenango County Sheriff's Office went to the home of Valeria Goude, 47, with the assistance of Compassionate Care Veterinarians.

During the search, deputies allegedly found dead and malnourished animals on her property.

Goude was arrested and charged with cruelty to animals, but was released on the condition that the animals still alive are examined by a veterinarian.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
