News


Macon-Bibb Animal Control officials seized 21 dogs from a home Tuesday due to poor living conditions.

According to an incident report from the Bibb County Sheriff's Office, it happened at a home on North Confederate Drive around 3 p.m.

The home, belonging to 38-year-old Kimberly Alderman and Eric Hollingshed, also 38, had 11 dogs that were found in kennel fences around several piles of feces in the backyard.

The report states Animal Welfare officials also noticed several puddles of urine.

Hollingshed was asked if he bred the dogs and told Bibb deputies "times were hard." He said the female dogs were not spayed, and he sold the puppies for additional money. Hollingshed also said two of the dogs also had worms, which hadn't been treated for.

In addition to the other dogs, two separate puppy litters were hidden near a sliding glass door in the back of the home.Alderman told deputies she hid them because "she did not want Animal Control to take them."

The pair then signed all of the dogs over to Animal Control officials.

Alderman and Hollingshed were arrested on animal cruelty and obstruction charges. Alderman was also charged with one count of forgery in an unrelated case.
